13.8 Scholarships for Tertiary Students

The Student Start-up Scholarship and Relocation Scholarship replaced the Commonwealth Education Costs Scholarship (CECS) and the Commonwealth Accommodation Scholarship (CAS) in April 2010.

Students receiving CECS and CAS will remain on the previous scholarship schemes but no new students will be eligible under these schemes. Indigenous students will continue to have access to CECS and CAS.

In 2010 and 2011 the relocation scholarship was paid at two levels: the initial scholarship amount and the ongoing rate.

From 1 January 2012 a new level was introduced for the second and third year an eligible child is studying and eligible for the relocation scholarship.
