Applications for the fourth round of the Rural and Regional Enterprise Scholarships (RRES) are now open. In 2020, more than 1000 scholarships, valued at up to $18,000 each, will be available to students living in regional and remote Australia, with additional consideration given to applicants affected by bushfire and drought.
RRES supports access to tertiary education for people from regional and remote areas of Australia studying any discipline, from Certificate IV to PhD level with an eligible higher education provider or vocational education and training institution. Scholarship recipients can choose any mode of study – face-to-face or online/by distance. Information about the scholarships, including eligibility requirements and how to apply, is available online through the support organisation, QTAC.
Applications will remain open throughout 2020, with offers made on an ongoing basis through the 2020 academic year or until available scholarships are fully allocated.
If you are a regional or remote student and wish to apply but as a result of a natural disaster are experiencing difficulty developing or submitting an application, please contact QTAC directly to discuss your circumstances and eligibility:
