This scheme for students is available during Semester 2 only.

What is a Financial Support Grant?

The purpose of the Financial Support Grant Scheme is to assist students enrolled in their second or later year of an award at Flinders University, to continue their enrolment in their current course.

Grants will be available to students who are experiencing financial hardship and are ineligible for a student loan or for whom a student loan would be inappropriate.

Applicants must be able to demonstrate that other sources of assistance have been sought and are unavailable or inappropriate.

The value of the grants awarded will be $500.

To be eligible you must:

  • Be currently enrolled at Flinders University
  • Able to demonstrate financial hardship
  • In your second or later year of study at Flinders University (successfully completed at least 36 units of study in your current course)
  • Demonstrate that a grant will assist you to continue your enrolment in your current course
  • Priority will be given to applicants who have not recently received other Flinders’ Grants
