Queensland Government Crisis Assistance Fund for International Students (Brisbane campus)

The Queensland State Government has partnered with Federation University to provide limited crisis assistance grants to international students affected by COVID-19.

Eligible students may receive grants of up to $500.

To be eligible, you must be:

  • Experiencing financial hardship due to COVID-19
  • Currently enrolled at the Brisbane Campus, Federation University
  • Be within Australia, and currently living in Queensland
    If you do not meet those criteria, unfortunately you are not eligible for this crisis assistance.

Funding is limited, so you should provide as much information and evidence as possible.  This could include bank statements, stand-down letters from employers, or any other evidence that supports your claims.

Applications close Friday 24 July 2020. Please apply here.

If you have any questions, please contact your International Student Support team via email

Please note that applications for all other funds are currently closed.
