This page includes funding mechanisms (sometimes known as 159Ls) issued by the Minister responsible for tertiary education 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)
