ACPET offers a number of scholarships to students who have experienced a national disaster in Australia.
The National Disaster Scholarship Scheme
The National Disaster Scholarship Scheme was initiated in response to the 2009 Black Saturday bushfires in Victoria. The Scheme assists individuals affected by major natural disasters that have occurred in Australia.
The Scheme provides
- tuition support for the completion of Australian based vocational education qualifications at certificate and diploma level in a wide range of study areas and occupations
- support for study towards a vocational education certificate or diploma course
This assistance is available through the generosity of ACPET’s member colleges and institutions.
The scholarship brochure provides more details on how the scheme works.
Applications can be lodged at anytime and there are no age restrictions.
