Applications for grants of up to $5,000 are still open

MELBOURNE, 6 NOV. The Andrews Labor Government has announced 14 new projects worth $337,000 to help Victoria’s international students through its International Student Welfare Program (ISWP).

The projects include cricket matches, legal education seminars and cultural celebrations designed to address everything from international student wellbeing and mental health to student safety and community engagement. One of the key projects announced is a $75,000 grant for Inner Melbourne Community Legal to provide legal support for international students studying at universities, TAFEs and private education providers. The funding will go towards delivering legal education that will help nearly 600 newly arrived international students with important issues like practical legal knowledge, personal safety and common legal issues.

Cricket Victoria’s Harmony in Cricket program has also been allocated $50,000 for a project that aims to bring international students together through cricket – regardless of faith, background, gender or ability. The newly announced ISWP projects will support up to 115,000 international students throughout Victoria, with previously funded projects having already helped more than 40,000 international students across the state.

Minister for Trade and Investment Philip Dalidakis also announced that applications under Category One of the program are now open. Grants of up to $5,000 are available to student groups for activities that support international student wellbeing in Victoria.

International education is incredibly important to Victoria’s economy – it was worth $7.1 billion in 2016 and supports more than 30,000 jobs throughout Victoria.
