Redeemer Lutheran College has partnered with Lutheran Services Qld and others to apply for and receive a national NHMRC grant for a 5-year project relating to intergenerational living and learning called Grandschools. The lead universities for this research project are QUT, ACU and Deakin universities.
The website for this project is https://grandschoolsproject.wordpress.com/
There is an exciting and funded opportunity for someone to take up a doctoral scholarship. There might be a staff member in one of our Lutheran schools or services who would love to apply for this exciting mission work.

Here you will find the two PhD Scholarship opportunities advertised for the ACU led projects:
- Models of Intergenerational Learning and Living – Youth Social Enterprise Employment Project
- Models of Intergenerational Learning and Living – Cooperative Spaces Project
There are four doctoral scholarships in all with the two remaining scholarships through QUT and these are still to be advertised. The project team is keen to cast a wide net for these doctoral candidates. There will be projects for research in Queensland, NSW, and Victoria. In Queensland a number of Lutheran schools may feature in these projects and Redeemer may have a possible candidate for Phase 2 research though their proposed Innovation Hub project. It is hoped a Lutheran School could be a potential site for the fully designed project in phase 3 with the possible building of a community village in joint partnership with Lutheran Services.
This is an opportunity for someone to be part of world leading research that can make a genuine difference in the lives of community, young, old and with disability in urban, regional and remote settings.
