A group of payments for Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander students or apprentices.

To get 1 or more ABSTUDY payments you must be:

  • an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander Australian
  • in an approved course, Australian Apprenticeship or traineeship
  • not getting another payment to study or train.

We’ve recently restructured our ABSTUDY content to group the information by types of students.

You might already get an ABSTUDY payment or want to check what payments you or your child could get.
