New Rural and Regional STEM Scholarships

Applications are now open for new Rural and Regional Enterprise Scholarships:

Students from regional and remote areas can now apply for scholarships valued at up to $18,000 to undertake STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) studies, including in agriculture and health fields.

The Rural and Regional Enterprise Scholarships supports students for up to four years (or the part-time equivalent) with the costs of studying a Certificate IV to a PhD level course.  The scholarships support flexible study and include part-time and online students.

Students may receive a further $500 to support an internship.

To be eligible for a scholarship the applicant must:

  • be an Australian citizen, permanent resident, holder of a permanent humanitarian visa, or a New Zealand citizen living in Australia;
  • not have already commenced their eligible course of study;
  • have a permanent home address that is in a regional or remote area as defined by the Australian Statistical Geography Standard. Applicants can check the remoteness classification of their address.
  • Scholarship recipients will be selected on the basis of need and merit, as outlined in Section 6 of the program guidelines, with priority given to women and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people among others.

Note: Applications are not submitted via VTAC. For more information and application instructions, please refer to the Department of Education and Training website.

  1. The Aus Gov web page connected to this directs students to put their application in via QTAC. Is this right? Is this open to students wanting to study in Victoria given QTAC is the Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre?
