PublishingPageContent

The following financial assistance and programs may be available for students in rural and remote locations:

  • the Living Away from Home Allowance Scheme (LAFHAS)  provides financial assistance for eligible students who are required to live away from home in order to attend school daily. Schools that meet certain conditions and are unable to deliver the required range of programs are referred to as 'Bypass schools'. A Bypass school is disregarded (or 'bypassed') when distance criteria are applied where assessing LAFHAS eligibility. The approved list of bypass schools is available in the Bypass Schools Procedure.
  • The Queensland Academies Isolated Student (QAIS) Bursary  provides financial assistance for eligible students who attend a Queensland Academy in south-east Queensland
  • Distance Education programs exist for students who live in locations where attending a school is impossible. Distance education also increases the range of curriculum options for students in small secondary schools
  • the Rural and Remote Education Access Program (RREAP) helps schools and school communities improve the educational outcomes and opportunities for students who are disadvantaged because of their geographical isolation so that their learning outcomes match those of other students
  • the Aspiring Teacher Grants  provide financial support of $5,000 for up to 25 Year 12 graduates residing in rural or remote locations who receive an Overall Position (OP) between 1 and 6, and commence an undergraduate initial teacher education program in 2018.
