March 6, 2023

Applications now open. NALA Student Development Fund.

The National Adult Literacy Agency (NALA) is delighted to announce applications for the 2023 NALA Student Development Fund are now open.

The Fund enables local adult education centres to carry out a non-tuition group activity for adults improving their literacy, numeracy and digital skills.

The fund encourages student empowerment by:

  • Requiring centre staff to ask students what they would like to do with the fund before applying;
  • Supporting an activity that adds to students’ learning experiences; and
  • Asking students to give their opinions as part of the fund.

You can find some inspiration on what you could apply for by reading our 2022 Student Development Fund report.
