Can people with disability apply? 

Yes. Applications from eligible people with disabilities are highly encouraged. Reasonable adjustments will be provided for People living with Disabilities Scholarship recipients based on an assessment of their needs.

What are ‘reasonable adjustments’ for people with disability?

Reasonable adjustments are measures that an education provider is required to take to ensure students with a disability can meet the academic standards of their course of study and participate on the same basis as students without a disability. Reasonable adjustments might include changes to the way a person enrols in a course, alterations to the physical environment and other facilities, and changes to the way training is delivered and skills are assessed.

Are women prioritised in the selection process?

At least 50 percent of the Awards will be offered to qualified women applicants.
