Intercultural Understanding Partnership (ICUP) Grants 2024-2025

Calling ALL schools in Australia! 

Do you encounter challenges while striving to foster a connected and inclusive school community?

APPLY NOW for the 2024-2025 Intercultural Understanding Partnership (ICUP) Grants. 

The ICUP program, a national initiative by Together For Humanity and funded by the Australian Government, offers you the chance to make a lasting change in your school. 

Successful ICUP applicants will receive up to $10,000 and work closely with Together For Humanity to address intercultural and/or interfaith challenges, enhancing student learning and wellbeing. 

Check out ICUP FAQs for more information. 

Please be advised that schools which have previously been awarded an ICUP grant should refrain from submitting a new application. Our priority is to assist schools that have not yet received our support, thereby extending the grant’s benefits to a broader range of communities.

To apply, please complete our online application form here. Applications close 30 June 2024 (AEST).

We believe that working together is more effective than working in isolation – good partnerships create benefits for all partners. We value partnerships where we work collaboratively towards a common goal.

Thanks to our partner
