Study Starter Grant (previously UniSQ Equity Scholarship)

Valued at $3000, the Study Starter Grant provides financial support for commencing students to navigate the costs of university study. UniSQ students from low-to-middle income households are encouraged to apply.

Consideration will be given to applicants from Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander backgrounds, and applicants from a rural town, or a remote/very remote community within Australia.

The grant will open for applications in Semesters/Trimesters 1, 2 & 3 2023.

Please note: If your application for a Study Starter Grant is successful, the funds will not be paid until approximately four weeks after the first census date in each semester.

If you are relying on a grant to purchase textbooks and resources, you may consider applying for an interest free Student Financial Loan. Please refer to the Student Financial Loan webpage for more information and application forms.

There are a limited number of grants available in 2023.

The grant will be paid as a direct deposit at a rate of:

  • $3000 (paid once per year)
