The National Priorities and Industry Linkage Fund (NPILF) is a part of the Job-ready Graduates package of higher education reforms. The Work-integrated Learning (WIL) grants are to support Universities engage industry to produce job-ready graduates and focuses on the following three priorities:
- Increase the number of internships, practicums, and other innovative approaches to work-integrated learning
- Increase the number of STEM-skilled graduates and improve their employment outcomes
- Support universities to develop and strengthen partnerships with industry.
Funding is available to Charles Sturt University staff within each faculty to develop strategic projects designed to meet one or more of the three Metric Targets, and three Case Study Key Performance Indicators. These are detailed in the NPILF Funding Application Guidelines distributed to each of the faculties.
