What is the Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF) Grant Program?
In 2012, the University of Melbourne introduced the Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF), in compliance with Australian legislation, to support the provision of non-academic student services and amenities. All students pay this fee annually, on a full time or part time basis.
The University is committed to understanding and meeting the needs of a diverse student population, and ensuring that all have an experience of lasting quality and enrichment. SSAF funds enable a wide range of initiatives, determined in collaboration with students, in support of this commitment.
The SSAF Grant Program provides staff and students with an opportunity to directly engage with the SSAF vision. The SSAF Grant Program offers funding for student-focussed initiatives that contribute to meeting the needs of our diverse student population. Grants will be available for projects across a range of areas, including, but not limited to: student clubs and societies; student services; transitioning new students; supporting diverse student cohorts; and student engagement.
