Yes. Applications from eligible PWDs are highly encouraged.
What are ‘reasonable adjustments’?
Reasonable adjustments are measures that an education provider is required to take to ensure students with a disability can meet the academic standards of their course of study and participate on the same basis as students without a disability. Reasonable adjustments might include changes to the way a person enrols in a course, alterations to the physical environment and other facilities, and changes to the way training is delivered and skills are assessed.
Awardees with disability are assessed and provided reasonable adjustments to ensure that they succeed in their award.
Are women prioritised in the selection process?
At least 50% of the Awards will be offered to qualified women applicants.
