We collaborate with a number of organisations to forge partnerships, programs and scholarships that benefit students from disadvantaged backgrounds. Below are some examples of such partnerships.
Country Education Foundation of Australia
Griffith has a partnership agreement with Country Education Foundation to support financially disadvantaged CEF-supported rural and regional students enrolling at the University.
The Smith Family
We support The Smith Family’s Learning for Life program through a Memorandum of Understanding, which focuses on aspiration raising and university transition for disadvantaged students in the Logan-Gold Coast corridor. Learning for Life students have access to:
- our equity outreach, admissions and transition support programs
- learning for Life student-specific activities
- equity scholarships
- career guidance and counselling
- online tutoring and writing assistance.
We also celebrate Learning for Life student achievements through hosting The Smith Family Tertiary Awards events annually at the Gold Coast and Logan.
Adult Learner Network (widening participation)
A joint initiative between Griffith University, QUT, a number of TAFE colleges, Coorparoo Centre for Continuing Secondary Education, Kingston Learning College and South East Region Learning Colleges, the Adult Learner Project supports adult learners enrolled in TAFE and senior secondary college pathway programs to realise their education and career aspirations.
