Monash University offer a range of supports and opportunities to facilitate your success that are coordinated by the Yulendj Indigenous Engagement Unit.
Alternatively, you can apply for a student loan or emergency grant through Monash Student Financial Aid.
All students should look into obtaining an Abstudy allowance. Full-time Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students can apply for Abstudy. If you are studying part-time, have an income or assets, then you may not be eligible.
We can assist with Abstudy applications. For further information visit the Abstudy website.
Australian Government Loan Schemes
For students who don't meet the Abstudy criteria, other student loan schemes are available to help with the costs of courses.
