Postgraduate Accommodation Bursary

Overview

The ANU Accommodation Bursary is designed to assist full time ANU students, established in permanent accommodation, who are experiencing unexpected financial hardship. Priority may be given to students nearing the end of their studies and needing assistance to complete. All applications are considered by a committee. Lodging an application does not guarantee a bursary will be awarded. Bursaries provide temporary assistance and should not be regarded as on-going aid.

Applications are assessed and awarded at the discretion of a committee and may include a personal interview. The committee will determine the amount of any bursary granted.

Applications are awarded on a per semester basis up to 24 weeks per semester, with the total maximum period being 48 weeks.

Students are not eligible to receive more than 48 weeks of bursary assistance over the course of their graduate studies. 

Bursaries granted to students living in an ANU Hall or affiliated residence will be paid directly to the residence to offset the student's rent account.
