How to apply
The scholarship initiative has 2 intakes per year via application rounds. The next round of scholarships will open from Monday 23 March to Monday 20 April.
The Inclusive Education Grants initiative links to the wider
Inclusive Education Agenda Reform - Additional Supports Program arising out of the
Review of the Program for Students with Disabilities (pdf - 949.88kb). Supporting students and young children with disabilities and additional needs and strengthening inclusive education is a key Education State priority.
It is important that all educators have the skills and knowledge to confidently and effectively respond to the unique learning needs of all students, including those with disabilities or additional learning needs.
Launched in late 2017 as part of the Inclusive Education Agenda Reform – Additional Supports Program, the Inclusive Education Grants initiative provides scholarship funding for teachers seeking to undertake postgraduate study in inclusive education. Through the Equipment Boost for Schools, the initiative also provides access to specialised equipment and assistive technology to support students with their learning. This will support schools to strengthen their inclusive education practices, so that all students, including those with a disability or an additional learning need, can succeed in their learning.
Inclusive education means that all members of every school community are valued and supported to fully participate, learn, develop and succeed within an inclusive school culture. This initiative is part of the Victorian Government’s commitment to inclusive education by increasing the number of highly qualified and specialised inclusive education teachers working in Victorian schools.
