At Edified, we believe education can transform lives. We also believe that powerful change can be led by individuals with passion and commitment. We’ve created the Edified Energiser Grants (EEGs) to energise people working to improve education around the world.
EEGs are worth AU $5,000 each and are awarded to individuals or groups with a compelling plan to improve education for their community. The plan could be small - becoming a teacher in your community. It could be a grand plan - creating a new EdTech platform to bring free education to world. Or anything in between. What’s important is that your plan is compelling and that we can see you have the vision and capability to make it happen. You can see previous winners here.
What’s a community? That’s up to you. It could be your home town, your country, or the whole world. It could be a group defined by their demographics – children in remote areas or adults working in health. It could be a virtual community. But it can’t exclude people on the basis of race, faith or sexuality.
EEGs are open to people of any nationality (domestic and international) who are currently studying at, or have graduated in the last 5 years, from an Australian, New Zealand, UK, Canadian or Swedish Higher Education, Vocational or English Language institution (part-time, online and offshore campuses accepted). Your project can be delivered in any country in the world. If you are applying as a group, only one of your team must be a student or recent graduate.
This year we’re offering 5 grants. One for each of the following categories:
A project to improve any type of education – supported by Edified
A project to improve education in safety, health or wellbeing – supported by Sonder
A project to improve education for women or about gender equity – supported by Lead5050

We’re delighted to announce the 2021 winners. Each participating person or group will be given A$5000 to support the development and growth of their project. All the projects are focussed on improving the education of a nominated community and fit within Edified’s ethos of wishing to sponsor positive social change through education.
