Sports development

We continue to work towards the public good. We are focused on developing individuals who help their communities grow and flourish.

The Community University Partnerships (CUP) Sports Development Grant is a small grants program (generally $500 - $1,000) to assist rural sportspeople or teams to attend regional, national or other one-off events, to assist community sporting groups to host regional, national or other one-off events in CSU's campus regions, and to provide equipment to assist people who have difficulty meeting the cost of participation in sports programs.

Community and sporting organisations and educational institutions (e.g. schools) may apply for a grant in this round.
