Historically TAFE students have incurred lower fees, lower out-of-pocket expenses and less need to live away from home than University students. However TAFE student fees are now undergoing significant change with higher student contributions, including full fees for some courses.
Universities have responded to their student fee environment with a large number of scholarship opportunities. Now it is time for TAFE to do the same. We will achieve this with your support.
The TAFE Directors Australia (TDA) National Scholarships Foundation was established to assist students with equity scholarships for those experiencing financial hardship and achievement sholarships for those demonstrating excellence.
Scholarship funds may be used for students’ fees, computers, books, childcare, transport costs, tools or equipment.
A small percentage is retained by the Foundation to cover administration costs.
