Students from regional Victoria that started university in 2021 can apply for scholarship up to $18,000
Federal Member for Monash Russell Broadbent said students from regional areas who started university this year could still apply for a scholarship worth up to $18,000.
Federal Member for Monash Russell Broadbent said Round 5 of the Australian Government's Rural and Regional Enterprise Scholarship (RRES) program has scholarships available for eligible students who commenced study in 2021.
Scholarships support flexible study arrangements, and are available to eligible students, and may receive up to $18,000 each (e.g. for a full-time, four-year qualification), shorter, part-time qualifications are paid on a pro rata basis, an extra $500 is also available to support an internship
Round 5 still open
Mr Broadbent said, "If you haven't previously considered what financial support might be available, this is a fantastic opportunity for students from regional and remote communities from Monash,"
"Round 5 is still open to students who are undertaking courses from Certificate IV to PhD level and who started their study in 2021. I encourage everyone who is eligible to apply." Mr Broadbent said.
Minister for Regionalisation, Regional Communications and Regional Education Senator the Hon Bridget McKenzie said the Australian Government had committed more than $62 million for the program since 2017. "The RRES program has delivered more than 3,000 scholarships to help students from regional and remote communities access a tertiary education."
"These scholarships have provided vital financial support to many students, some of whom may otherwise not have been able to afford higher education. The Australian Government is ensuring that no matter where you live you can benefit from our world-class tertiary institutions."
"We want to provide as many opportunities as possible for individuals in regional and remote Australia to pursue further study, and relieving the financial burden is one way to help them to do that." Minister McKenzie said.
