The Nationals leader and Member for Murray Plains, Peter Walsh, says more than 1000 eligible students from regional and remote Australia will have access to a scholarship worth up to $18,000 to support their tertiary education in 2022.
Mr Walsh said applications for Round 6 of the Rural and Regional Enterprise Scholarships (RRES) program are now open.
He said the scholarships support students to undertake courses from Certificate IV to PhD level.
“Since 2018, these scholarships, fund by the Liberals Nationals, have helped support more than 4000 regional and remote students to access a tertiary education,” Mr Walsh added.
“Students will have access to opportunities to further their education regardless of where they live,” he said.
“These scholarships support the cost of tertiary education, aiming to reduce financial stress for regional students and their families
“The Liberals and Nationals ate state and federal level are committed to reducing the disparity between rural and regional students and their city counterparts, and these scholarships help deliver on that promise.
“I encourage all eligible regional and remote Australians to apply for these scholarships to support them in their higher education,” Mr Walsh said.
