Attracting more students to our community
26 scholarships are available to international and domestic students to study in our community next year, the Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan said.
“There will be 16 scholarships at Southern Cross University in Lismore and 10 scholarships at the Wollongbar campus of TAFE,” Mr Hogan said.
“These education providers have been provided over $1 million to offer the scholarships through the Federal Government’s $93.7 million Destination Australia program.
“Destination Australia provides scholarships worth $15,000 a year to students who study at a regional university or vocational education provider.
“Our region has a great story to tell and we can be an attractive destination for international and domestic students.
“Attracting more students to study here will be good for our community, good for local businesses and good for tourism.
“International students who study in regional Australia rate their living and learning experience higher than students based in metropolitan centres.
Students can apply directly to institutions. Successful tertiary education providers can be found at www.education.gov.au/destination-australia.
