Student Equipment Bursaries!

Hello everyone! I hope your exams are going well. Study really hard, but also take regular breaks and get enough sleep to stay sane. Remember, just a few more days and the break is here, so hang in there.



Have you heard of the new Student Equipment Bursary? La Trobe University is offering a number of equipment bursaries available to students that are experiencing financial hardship and any other educational disadvantage. This grant can help you buy a computer, books, or any other course related materials that you need! This scholarship can also assist any students with a disability and students with a refugee background. To be eligible to apply, you must:

  • Be an Australian citizen, permanent resident, or hold a humanitarian visa
  • Be enrolled in an undergraduate or postgraduate course in 2017
  • Demonstrate a low socio-economic status
  • Be able to demonstrate other educational disadvantage



The applications for the bursary closes on 13 August, so get in quick! You can find the application form here. Also, if you want to find more information about other bursaries and scholarships available, you can visit the uni’s website. Good luck with the rest of your finals, and see you in another post!
