The Public Education Foundation’s Rural and Remote Indigenous Primary Scholarship supports Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander students enrolled in Australian public primary schools in a rural or remote area.
The intent of the scholarship is to allow students to engage, learn, strive, reach their full potential and excel through their primary school education.
The scholarship will provide financial support to help the student with resources and services relevant to improving their educational outcomes. An amount of $1,000 per year will be paid to one successful applicant for each year of their primary schooling, for Years 2-6 (total amount $5,000), or Years 3-6 (total amount $4,000).
The scholarship is to cover educational expenses such as:
- Uniforms and school shoes (including school sports clothing)
- Literacy and/or numeracy support
- Stationery and text books
- Laptop, iPad or other similar device
- Subject or study related software
- Internet connection for study at home
- School excursions and school camps
- Furniture for study such as desk, chair, lamp etc
- Face to face or online tutoring
If a student leaves public school before the end of primary school, the scholarship will lapse. Any unspent monies at the end of the scholarship period must be refunded to the Public Education Foundation scholarship fund.
