New Seed Funded Projects

Melbourne Social Equity Institute invests in interdisciplinary and co-productive research that addresses social equity issues through seed funding and co-funding.

The Melbourne Social Equity Institute's Seed Funding Program is designed to support medium-scale projects that create opportunities for researchers, policymakers, practitioners and people with lived experience of disadvantage or marginalisation to undertake research together.

We are delighted to announce the five projects that have received seed funding in 2022.

The selected projects demonstrate a combination of interdisciplinarity, connection to the community,  and innovative research methodologies. They also show the potential to be impactful and to make a positive difference in the lives of people and communities who experience inequities.
