HEPPP had three components:
- National Priorities Pool
Component A – Participation
The Participation component of HEPPP provided funding to universities to increase the participation of domestic students from low SES backgrounds in accredited undergraduate qualifications, and support the retention and success of those students. Funding is allocated to universities by formula based on the number of students from low SES backgrounds enrolled at each university.
Participation funding allocated to each university is shown in the following spreadsheet:
Component B – Partnerships
The Partnerships component of HEPPP provided funding to universities to raise the aspirations and build the capacity of people from low SES backgrounds to participate in higher education, by developing activities in partnership with primary and secondary schools, VET providers, other universities, State and Territory governments, community groups and other stakeholders.
Since 2013 funding was allocated to universities by formula based on the number of students from low SES backgrounds enrolled at each university. Previously most Partnerships funding was allocated through competitive grants rounds. Projects funded through this component can be found on the following pages:
- HEPPP 2013 Partnerships Competitive Grants Round
- Nationally significant projects addressing the Behrendt review
- HEPPP 2011 Partnerships Competitive Grants Round
National Priorities Pool
The National Priorities Pool component provides funding for projects that support the more effective implementation of HEPPP nationally and at the institutional level.
