Claim ABSTUDY for this year for you or your child

Published: 15 September 2023

If your child is in high school, they can still get ABSTUDY if they claim before 31 December.

High school students who live at home or away from home could be eligible for a payment for 2023.

ABSTUDY is a group of payments and support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to help with:

  • boarding fees
  • travel
  • school fee costs
  • school items
  • living costs.

If your child is 15 or younger, you'll need to call us to claim. If your child is 16 or older they can claim themselves. Call the ABSTUDY line and we will help you work out which payments you or your child could get.
