QLD Government offers grants for research projects which will respond to ECEC issues

The Queensland Government has announced $1.25 million in funding for research projects that respond to modern challenges in early childhood and school-based education settings. 


The Education Horizons grant program first launched in 2016 to inform improvements in the education system, and 2024 will mark the sixth round of the successful program, which is designed to support high-quality local research in line with the Queensland Government’s education research priorities.


Previous recipients have undertaken research that has provided lasting benefits for early childhood and school communities, and improved academic and social outcomes for Queensland students.


Research projects can cover a wide range of education matters including educational leadership and teaching expertise, digital innovation, educational performance and support, education infrastructure and the learning journey.


The successful applicants will be selected by a departmental panel, with project timeframes ranging from six months to two years.


Grants are open to academics at Queensland universities or an interstate university with a significant campus in Queensland. Successful recipients of the 2024 round will be announced in March next year.
