Indigenous Support Program (ISP)

Program Objectives

The Indigenous Support Program (ISP) provides grants to higher education providers to assist them to meet the needs of their Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and to advance the goals of the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education Policy (AEP). The ISP operates under the Higher Education Support Act 2003.

The types of activities supported under ISP include the establishment and management of Indigenous Education Units, assistance with study skills, personal counselling and cultural awareness activities.


The ISP Guidelines are instructions for eligible higher education providers administering the program. They can be found in Chapter 1 of the Other Grants Guidelines
