HERDSA Heroes in Higher Education Awards
Closing date 5pm AEST on 14th May 2021

HERDSA is pleased to announce they will be giving 5 new awards this year called HERDSA Heroes in Higher Education. There are five awards of $500 each.

These awards recognise academic generosity in challenging times, with an opportunity to show gratitude by recognising the generosity of a colleague or team of colleagues, who have supported you or others in an unexpected/exceptional way during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This academic generosity may be in the areas of research, teaching, service, or academic development. The generosity received may be something “tangible” (e.g., outstanding support with shifting to online teaching and learning), or more “intangible” (e.g., helping you to feel a sense of belonging and connectedness in a time of isolation). Close of submission by
5pm on 14th May 2021
