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.

Scholarship investment

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.
