COVID-19 Collarts Study Grant Application

Collarts has established two COVID-19 Collarts Study Grants which are available to students returning in T2 who have experienced academic, financial or personal difficulties due to COVID-19.

There are two key grants:

$1500 COVID-19 Major Hardship Study Grant: 

This grant will be open to students who have experienced major hardship as a result of COVID-19 and who will have difficulty maintaining study because of these circumstances. This could include loss of income, loss of secure housing and/or an inability to access government support.

$300 COVID-19 Study Resources Grant: 

This grant is open to students who would benefit from being able to purchase additional study resources to assist learning from home. This could relate to home study, internet costs, equipment costs, or to cover additional mental health support.  

Important information: 

  • To be eligible:
    • Higher Education students will need to be enrolled in at least 18 credit points at Trimester 2 2020 Census date (30 credit points for Entertainment Journalism*).
    • Certificate IV students must be fully enrolled at census date.
  • The fund is open to local and international students and applies to all courses at Collarts, excluding the VET in Schools program.
  • Students can apply for both grants, but will only be eligible to receive one.
  • Applications will be assessed at the discretion of Collarts’ Student Support staff.
  • Whilst Collarts will endeavour to support as many students as possible, grants are limited and priority will be given to students who are deemed to have the greatest need.  
  • To assist the processing of these grants, students may be asked to provide additional evidence to support their application.
  • Students will be advised if their application has been successful in the week of 15 June 2020.
