The Tertiary Access Payment is a scholarship provided by the Federal Government to assist students who completed Year 12 in 2020, with the cost of relocating from an outer regional or remote area for tertiary study.
The payment is intended to help ease the burden of expenses such as accommodation, household bills, groceries, textbooks and other study supplies.
Approved applicants will receive a total of $5,000 paid in two instalments.
Eligibility requirements and closing dates are available to view on the QUT Tertiary Access Payment website.
QUT's Young Accelerators program offers on-campus curriculum-mapped STEM workshops, events and teacher professional development sessions that aim to excite and inspire learning by combining STEM with creative learning and entrepreneurship.
