SSP Project Timelines & Support

Each year, there are four rounds in which UQ students and/or staff can submit SSP Project ideas. The timelines for 2020 and 2021 are outlined below.

Looking for help?

Would you like to discuss your project?

The SSP Projects Team are happy to meet in person, or via Zoom to discuss your SSP Project ideas. We also provide friendly peer-review. If you would like feedback on your draft submission, you are more than welcome to email Please note the peer review dates in the timelines below.

Email the SSP Team

Who reviews my project submission?

All SSP Project submissions are reviewd by the SSP Projects Team and nominated student partners. All submissions are assessed in alignment with the Project Selection Criteria.

Will I receive feedback on my submission?

If the panel has queries on your submission, you may receive an email to seek clarification on elements of your proposal. Instigators will be invited to respond to these queries (as detailed within the specified timelines).

How many project ideas can I submit?

You can submit more than one project idea per round. It is possible that multiple projects could be successful, however:

  • If you are a student looking to be a Student Partner on the project, you can only receive a Student Partner Grant for one project per round (but could choose to volunteer in other projects).
  • If you are a Staff member, it is important to consider your workload when submitting multiple projects.
  • If you are submitting multiple project ideas, consider collaborating with others on the submissions.
