Current and recently off-contract players (up to 36 months) are encouraged to pursue education and training opportunities.
Education Grants Current and recently off-contract players (up to 3 years) are encouraged to pursue education and training opportunities. The ACA through GamePlan makes a significant commitment to subsidise players' development through the provision of grants.
Each member can apply annually for a grant of up to $4,000 to be used towards professional development and formalised learning. For further information on education and training grants please contact your PDM or Elesha Te Paa on ETePaa@auscricket.com.au or 03 9698 7200.
The education grants are amazing really. To sit back and think about the opportunity it gives players to study, and not just giving us some funding for that, but it's also opportunities and being able to work in different places and try new things.MEG LANNING AUSTRALIAN CAPTAIN
