In-line with Government advice, currently no overseas travel on University business can be funded, so we will not consider international applications involving travel until this advice changes. In the meantime, we welcome applications which focus on on-line learning and teaching, which could be delivered by on-line/virtual exchange instead of a visit and will consider the award of some funding to support such activities.
WIHEA Funding Opportunities
WIHEA seeks to recognise, develop and embed outstanding academic practices that enhance student opportunities to 'learn beyond boundaries' and in support of this manages three funding schemes each offering up to a max of £5,000 per project/visit:
Scheme 1 - WIHEA Co-creation Project Funding
Scheme 2 - Monash Warwick Alliance Education Exchange Scheme
Scheme 3 - International Visiting Teaching Fellowship Scheme
Further information on these funding opportunities can be found below.
WIHEA Strategic Priorities
Proposals for Co-Creation projects should include a conceptual introduction to one or more of the seven strategic priorities below. Successful proposals are likely to offer an online resource, case studies of successful embedded practices, comparison and reference to resources at peer institutions and/or pedagogical literature.
- Student Research
- Student Engagement
- Teaching Leadership
- Curriculum Design & Development
WIHEA Co-Creation Project Funding:
Proposals are invited for development and dissemination projects that enable collaborative partnerships between staff and students to directly improve the learning experience and result in guidance for departments, programme teams and individuals on the six strategic priorities listed above.
Monash Warwick Alliance Education Exchange Scheme &
The International Visiting Teaching Fellowship Scheme:
Both schemes aim to attract international academic leaders, who have made an impact within their specific field of teaching, pedagogical innovation or enhancing the student experience to share and engage with a wide cross-section of the University, by providing a contribution to enable a visit or a Monash exchange to take place.
Funding Criteria, Guidance & Application Forms

Applications for all WIHEA funding require a declaration of support from the Head of Department.
