The Federal government has announced a 1.3 million dollar funding boost for a program aimed at increasing the number of disadvantaged and regional students attending university.
La Trobe Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Vice-President (Academic) Professor Jane Long, says the program began as a state government funded pilot study in late 2012, but will now be expanded from three to twelve schools in Melbourne and Bendigo.
