ABSTUDY resources for community groups
Resources to help you share information about ABSTUDY.
ABSTUDY helps Indigenous Australians with the cost of studying or doing an Australian Apprenticeship. It helps with school fees, boarding, travel and other school related items.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students can get this from the start of high school right through to postgraduate studies.
We know community groups play a big role in supporting students and their families. So, we’ve created an ABSTUDY eKit to help you. Please use it to promote ABSTUDY in your community.
By using the eKit, you agree to reproduce content in the exact form provided by us. Please don’t change the designs in any way.
In the eKit
You’ll find a number of useful resources for your staff to use, and to share with ABSTUDY families and students.
