It is not too late for students from regional areas who started university this year to apply for a scholarship worth up to $18,000.
Member for Maranoa David Littleproud said Round 5 of the Federal Government’s Rural and Regional Enterprise Scholarship (RRES) program has scholarships available for eligible students who began study in 2021.
“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 Maranoa,” Mr Littleproud said.
“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.”
Regional Education Minister Senator Bridget McKenzie said the Federal Government had committed more than $62 million for the program since 2017.
“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,” she said.
