This page includes funding mechanisms (sometimes known as 159Ls) issued by the Minister for Tertiary Education, Skills and Employment under the Education Act 1989.

Funding mechanisms instruct us about a fund’s purpose and how a fund will work, and they cover the majority of funds we offer tertiary education organisations (TEOs)

The funding mechanisms below are grouped by year.
