JMR with Minister for Regionalisation, Regional Communications and Regional Education Senator the Hon Bridget McKenzie
Students across regional Victoria who commenced university this year are invited to apply for a scholarship worth up to $18,000.
Senator for Victoria Sarah Henderson said Round 5 of the Morrison Government’s Rural and Regional Enterprise Scholarship (RRES) program has scholarships available for eligible students who commenced 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,” Senator Henderson said.
“Round 5 is still open to students undertaking courses from Certificate IV to PhD level and who started their study in 2021. I strongly encourage eligible students to apply.”
Minister for Regionalisation, Regional Communications and Regional Education Senator the Hon Bridget McKenzie said the Australian Government had committed more than $62 million for the program since 2017.
“The RRES program has delivered more than 3,000 scholarships to help students from regional and remote communities access a tertiary education,” Minister McKenzie said.
“These scholarships have provided vital financial support to many students, some of whom may otherwise not have been able to afford higher education.
“The Australian Government is ensuring that no matter where you live you can benefit from our world-class tertiary institutions.
“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.”
