The Teaching & Learning Competitive Research Grant (TLCRG) applies to staff who already have an established research profile but are novice in areas such as Higher Education, Institutional and Curriculum Research, to new staff seeking to build scholarship in university teaching and learning, and to staff who undertake institutional level research within the university. 

The TLCRG is a developmental grant aimed at researchers just beginning their research careers and those who are in need of funds to establish themselves in research, but specifically within higher education research.
