Emergency Support Grant
The Emergency Support Grant is available to students experiencing things like financial hardship, difficulties at home, suffering from COVID-19 or having to isolate as a result of testing or the declaration of hot-spots.
The Arts Grant is available to purchase art supplies. Whether you are undertaking a University subject requiring new materials, are completing a personal art project, or preparing material for an exhibition or publication (including Under Bunjil), funds are awarded on a case-by-case basis to First Nations aspiring artists.
The Sports Grant is available to students seeking funds to attend a sporting competition or to purchase additional clothing or equipment. Funds are awarded on a case-by-case basis.
The Entrepreneurial Grant is available to students attempting to implement a project to better our community. The scope of this Grant is very wide, so please elaborate about the specificities of the community project to ensure we understand how potential funds will be used if your application is successful.
