Swinburne Students Receive $10,000 to Practice Grant-making
Students from Swinburne University of Technology will gain real life experience in philanthropy and grant-making by determining how to allocate $10,000 as part of the university's Master of Social Investment and Philanthropy.
Students will gain real world experience in:
- working in project teams to determine the terms of a grant process
- conducting due diligence and site visits
- reviewing and assessing applications
- providing accountable and ethical justification for awarding funds.
Outside of North America, Swinburne is the first university to offer experiential giving. The Experiential Giving Program is funded by the Truby and Florence Williams Charitable Trust, a philanthropic trust managed by Equity Trustees.
