There are a number of ways that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students can access financial support to study at Flinders University. Yunggorendi staff can provide you with more information and assistance.

These include:

ABSTUDY is a program administered by Centrelink.  It provides financial assistance for tertiary students, including Masters and Doctorate students. 

There are a number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander specific scholarships for undergraduate and postgraduate students.  Some Commonwealth scholarships are tax free. 

Please visit the Scholarships website and search the database. You can also speak to an Academic Adviser at Yunggorendi about a scholarship that may be suitable for your circumstances.

Cadetships are available for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students who are enrolled full-time in their first undergraduate degree.  Cadetships link students with potential employers who can provide work placements and ongoing employment once you finish your studies.
