Improving access to quality education for regional students

26 April, 2023

Students living in rural, regional and remote areas can now apply for an Australian Government funded program to assist with boarding fees.

The Commonwealth Regional Scholarship Program is helping to improve access to quality education for young people living in regional Australia.

The program will deliver approximately 100 scholarships, with the intention to reduce costs to families’ financial contribution towards boarding school fees and associated costs.

This is a pilot program that will run over 7 years, with scholarships to be offered for up to 6 years, commencing from the 2024 school year.

Applications close: 9:00PM (AEST) 3 May 2023
