Last updated: 1:30pm Tuesday 19 May 2020 The Queensland Government has more than tripled its support for students, boosting its state-wide international education assistance and recovery package to $15 million. As part of this package, an additional $10 million will now be made available to support international students experiencing severe financial hardship as a result of COVID-19. Study Queensland recognises that many international students have lost their income and are feeling a heightened sense of anxiety being away from family during the pandemic, with many unable to travel home. The new funding complements a range of relief programs already introduced by the Queensland Government, universities, education and training providers and local communities to support students during this difficult time. Currently, the Queensland Government is working on a process to distribute: Additional funding to Queensland-based universities and TAFE Queensland to top-up their bursaries and student support services. One-off payments to private VET and ELICOS students. The Queensland Government looks forward to announcing when the funding will be made available. We encourage you to follow Study Queensland’s social media channels to keep up to date with announcements. More details on the package can be found below.
