ABSTUDY School Fees Allowance at home rate

Help with the cost of public school fees for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander school students living at home.

This is a payment for parents and guardians of either:

  • high school students aged 15 or younger
  • primary school students aged 14 or older as of 1 January in the year of study.

Some students who live at home may be eligible for the School Fees Allowance higher rate instead. This is only in special circumstances.
