WIL Staff of the Year Awards
The WIL Staff of the Year Award aims to encourage, recognise and value the way our University integrates learning with workplace, leadership and community experiences and those who successfully provide those opportunities to our students. Staff involved in WIL at the University have a chance to win $1, 000 (before tax), awarded to the winning entry from each of the five faculties.

Domestic and international undergraduate students can apply for the awards with $1,000 awarded to the chosen students from each of the University's five faculties. A $1,000, university wide WIL Award will also be available for a post-graduate student.
