Awards & Grants

Awards

Heads of School from the Art and Design sector are welcomed each year to nominate staff for the annual ACUADS Awards. Recipients receive $500 in addition to a citation and presentation of a pin at the annual ACUADS conference.

The Executive assess all nominations against the stated criteria and reserves the right to make a nomination.
