The Rural and Regional Enterprise Scholarships (RRES) program is now open, helping Australians in regional and remote areas to access higher education
It supports people studying from Certificate IV through to PhD level with grants up to $18,000 each.
The Rural and Regional Enterprise Scholarships program was announced in 2016 and has provided scholarship funding to more than 4,000 students.
Applications for Round 6 of the RRES Program are now open for students:
- commencing a new course of study in 2022
- studying on campus, online or via distance education
- studying from six months full-time up to eight years part-time.
Eligible students may receive up to $18,000 each (e.g. for a full-time, four-year qualification). Shorter, part-time qualifications are paid on a pro-rata basis. An extra $500 is also available to support an internship.
