Student Community and Development Grant

Student Community and Development Grant

Student Community and Development Grants are designed to assist Arc and UNSW in providing support to students who seek to contribute to campus community and student life, and develop graduate attributes through hosting or participating in activities on or off campus. Grants are available to Arc members, groups of Arc members or Arc affiliated Clubs.


Student Community and Development Grants are administered by the Student Development Committee in five separate rounds each year. The SCDG application process is highly competitive, applications are assessed on:


  • The contribution towards the development of graduate attributes
  • The cultural, social, historical and reputational significance of the event and the contribution to campus culture and community
  • The nature, topic and size of the event
  • The degree of planning and preparation for the event
  • How innovative the activity or approach is
  • The number of Arc members likely to benefit from the event and the ability for the applicant to use the experience gained to benefit Arc members and the campus community
  • Other avenues of funding support
  • Previous dealings between the Club, group or individual and Arc


All applications must be submitted through Arc's new online system.

The form is available here.
