Indigenous Accommodation Scholarship

At La Trobe, we understand how important access to safe, secure and affordable housing is for our students.

That’s why we are offering Indigenous students a guaranteed place in our accommodation facilities across all of our campuses, as well as a scholarship that will cover any gap left after Rent Assistance – this means you’ll be able to live on campus at no financial cost to you.*

I honestly didn’t think I would get the scholarship, I was so humbled by it as there are so many other deserving people, but I was encouraged to apply for it by the staff at my school and La Trobe University. I just told myself you’ve got to be in it to win it. I also received the VC’s Scholarship for my school. When I got the email to say I received the Destinations Australia Scholarship I was so surprised. When I told my mum she had to sit down. I can’t work at the moment so this will go a long way to helping me buy my own car.

I've been a type-one diabetic since I was four, so I've lived through the experience of paediatricians genuinely working for you and caring for you. This Inland Rail scholarship will give me future financial stability to get the best education I can, before putting my roots down in a regional area like Wodonga, where I am determined to become a paediatrics specialist. People need to be supported and encouraged to stay in their community to study and work, rather than having to move away in the hope they’ll one day return. Scholarships like this one offer that level of support to help keep local people in their hometowns once they leave school and begin their careers.
