NUS Ed Con Grant Applications

The National Union of Students (NUS) has announced the upcoming NUS Education Conference, which will take place on the 26-29th June in Brisbane. The conference will bring together student activists to discuss both the ways to enhance student unionism and the most pressing issues facing higher education.

The NUS Education Conference is a unique opportunity to engage in meaningful conversations about the future of student unionism and higher education. Participants will have the chance to attend workshops, hear from keynote speakers, and connect with other like-minded individuals who are passionate about activism and improving the quality of education.

UMSU is committed to ensuring that the conference is accessible to all students. To that end, we are offering a limited number of grants worth 400$ to help cover the cost of flights and cost of accommodation. The cost of attending will be fully covered by UMSU - (needs to be finalised by NUS)

If you're interested in attending the NUS Education Conference we encourage you to apply for a grant. Grant applications will be open from the 12th of May to the 12th of June. To apply, simply visit (application form tbc)
