  • Cultural and intercultural activities, including sporting events;
  • Skills development activities and events.
Applicant Eligibility
  • A minimum of two applicants (lead applicant and co-applicant) from each university per application is required. Lead students will be accountable for the delivery of the initiative and for the oversight and acquittal of project expenditure.
