The Morrison Liberal National Government is offering $15,000 scholarships to 4,720 students who study in regional areas through the $94 million Destination Australia program. The scholarships will be available to domestic and international students and will be accessible through regional universities and VET providers.
This is a great opportunity for local higher education and VET providers to apply for funding so they can offer Destination Australia scholarships through their institution.
A vibrant student community will further invigorate our local economy by supporting full-time jobs and business opportunities as well as encouraging more tourism. Our regional centres have a lot to offer students and we also have a lot to gain.
Higher education and VET providers from regional Australia can check their eligibility and apply via GrantsHub on the online platform.
Funding will be finalised later this year, which will allow providers to offer scholarships for study commencing semester one 2020.
Successful providers will also be entitled to additional funding to allocate, administer and promote the scholarships to prospective international and domestic students.
