About this scholarship


The Emergency Accommodation Bursary is designed to assist students who are currently enrolled at the ANU as an award-status student, and are experiencing unexpected financial difficulty in meeting their accommodation costs. Assistance is not ongoing and the bursary is not designed for pre-arrival costs or as a method of income. Funds are granted subject to eligibility.

Applications are assessed and awarded at the discretion of the Bursary Review Committee. The Committee will determine the amount of any bursary granted from an assessment of the student’s need and the availability of funds. The Emergency Accommodation Bursary can provide up to 52 weeks of financial support over the course of your current level of study at the ANU.

If living on campus, bursary funds will be paid directly to a student's residential account.
