Emergency Grants Scheme

Bushfire crisis support

The health and wellbeing of our students during our nation's devastating bushfire crisis is our greatest priority. In response to this disaster, we've established a 2019/2020 Bushfire Crisis Student Grant to provide immediate aid of up to $2,000 for each approved student. This money does not have to be paid back.

Emergency grant

If you're experiencing financial hardship, you may be eligible for the Student Emergency Grants Scheme (SEGS). This grant is for students whose financial situation is jeopardising their ability to continue their studies.

Money provided through a grant can be used for such things as essential living expenses, a laptop (to meet BYOD requirements), course materials or other unexpected expenses, and does not have to be paid back.


To be eligible for a grant, you must be:

  • currently enrolled at Monash University
  • at risk of discontinuing your study
  • able to demonstrate exceptional financial hardship
  • able to demonstrate an ability and intention to complete your course.

How to apply

You can apply for a grant of up to $500. You need to complete all relevant details of the application for it to be processed.
