Charity and Community Enhancement Funding

The purpose of the GCAP Charity and Community Enhancement Funding (CCEF) program is to provide support to assist postgraduate students to engage in community charity work both domestically and internationally.

It is envisioned that application endeavours will assist group trips to disadvantaged communities providing aid work.

Applications for trimester three have now opened. Applications can be submitted during the teaching semester, however no applications will be reviewed until after the trimester census date, with the GCAP Board reviewing applications on a monthly basis.  The GCAP funding committee has the authority to grant a maximum of $2,500 per application (group applications only with a group bank account/club account required for deposit of funds, no individual funding available). Funding requests which exceed this amount must first be ratified by the GCAP Board.
