Rural and Regional Enterprise Scholarships (RRES)
The Rural and Regional Enterprise Scholarships (RRES) program was announced in 2016 to help Australians in regional and remote areas to access higher education. It supports people studying from Certificate IV through to PhD level.
Over 5000 students have received scholarship funding since the program’s first round which commenced in late 2017.
Scholarship recipients received up to $18,000 each (e.g. for a full-time, four-year qualification). Shorter, part-time qualifications were paid on a pro-rata basis. An extra $500 was also available to support an internship.
