Seed ISP grants of $5-8,000 are available annually for small pilot projects, which test and evaluate an original idea.  Applications can address any of the priorities in the Innovation and Scholarship program. Duration 6 months

Full ISP grants of $10-25,000 are available annually for projects identified and proposed by individuals or teams. Duration 12-18 months

Enhancement Program Grants

Enhancement Program (EP) grants are awarded on a competitive basis to fund projects which have previously been piloted at MQ or elsewhere (not national funding), promote and support strategic change for the enhancement of learning and teaching. Projects should devise a program of activities that will embed project findings into ongoing practice.

EP Grants may include large-scale curriculum development in an existing program.  They may also include funding for specialist hardware and/or software for teaching, indicating how it enhances and integrates current learning and teaching initiatives.
