Indigenous students seeking higher education and apprenticeship qualifications are urged to investigate financial assistance through the Commonwealth Department of Human Service’s ABSTUDY program.
ABSTUDY is designed to assist students of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent with costs related to uniforms, textbooks and equipment. The program can also help students who are living away from home with funding for travel and board.
If you are 16 years old or older, or a parent of a student under the age of 16, you may be eligible for these benefits.
Information on ABSTUDY and the related Relocation Scholarship is available at this link.
You can also manage your access through the program via Centrelink’s Express Plus App, available here.
