Annual grant to higher education institutions

Each spring, we inform directly funded higher education providers of their core grant allocations for the following academic year. Institutions are free to allocate the core grant internally as they deem appropriate, as long as it is used to support teaching, research and related activities.

Total funding includes the recurrent grant, initiative funds, capital funding and other allocations.
