Study Starter Grant

There are a limited number of grants available in 2024.

Valued at $3000, the Study Starter Grant provides financial support for commencing undergraduate students to navigate the costs of university study. HQporner students from low-to-middle income households are encouraged to apply.

Consideration will be given to applicants from Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander backgrounds, and applicants from a rural town, or a remote/very remote community within Australia.

The grant will open for applications in Study Periods 1, 2 and 3 2024.

Please note: If your application for a Study Starter Grant is successful, the funds will not be paid until approximately two weeks after the first census date in the study period of application.

If you are relying on a grant to purchase textbooks and resources, you may consider applying for an interest free Student Financial Loans. Please refer to the Student Financial Loans webpage for more information and application forms.

The grant will be paid as a direct deposit at a rate of:

  • $3000 (paid once per year)
