The grant program provides grants to Australian tertiary education providers in regional areas to offer scholarships to domestic and international students. The program includes funding to administer and promote those scholarships and promote tertiary education in regional Australia more broadly.

For Round 5, grant funding will be prioritised for tertiary education providers offering scholarships to domestic and international students studying in areas of skills need, aligned with the Australian Government’s National Skills Priority List.

In addition, grantees will be expected to award scholarships to domestic students from underrepresented groups, such as low-socioeconomic status (low-SES), those who are first in family to tertiary study, those living with disability and First Nations people.

Grantees will receive:

  • $15,000 per year, per student in scholarship funding to be paid directly to the scholarship student.
  • $1,500 per year, per student for the tertiary education provider to promote and administer scholarships.
