The NSW Government - Aboriginal Housing Office is offering Tertiary Accommodation Grants to eligible Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students enrolled in full time studies with University of Newcastle TAFE NSW, University of Sydney, Macquarie University and Charles Sturt University.

This is a new program established within the Strong Family, Strong Communities framework to support eligible tertiary students with grants of up to 10,000 to offset the cost of living whilst studying. The grants will support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students experiencing the impact of housing stress on their ability to study.

Applicants must be enrolled full-time in a diploma, advanced diploma, degree or IPROWD and demonstrate financial hardship.
