Fund for Innovation and Research in Learning and Teaching (Finlo) will not be accepting project proposals for the year 2024

Since its inception in 2005, the Fund for Innovation and Research in Learning and Teaching (Finlo) has played a pivotal role in advancing teaching, learning and assessment (TLA) for lecturers and students at SU through funding small-scale TLA projects focused on either innovation or research.


In line with Stellenbosch University’s commitment to good governance, transparency, and accountability, we believe it is important to assess the impact and effectiveness of Finlo. This is all the more important in the context of institutional financial constraints. With this in mind, the decision was made not to accept Finlo project proposals during 2024. Instead, an evaluation of the impact of the fund in relation to its own objectives and SU’s game changers in the teaching and learning core function will be undertaken.


Recipients of Finlo funding over the years will receive email communication requesting their assistance with submitting information for all projects as a first phase of the evaluation study. 

We value all stakeholders’ understanding and ongoing support as we work together to enhance TLA across our institution.
