Hardship Grants

What is the Hardship Grant Scheme?

AUSA’s Hardship Grant Scheme gives monetary grants to students who are experiencing severe financial difficulties. The scheme was set up to assist students in hardship with the basic necessities of life.

Successful applicants will be granted up to $250 depending on their situation and need, or up to $400 if they are caring for dependents.

NOTE: Hardship Grants are closed until Semester 1 2022
