Scholarship program

Thinking of studying or already enrolled?

You might be eligible for a scholarship to help with course fees and related expenses. 

Every year, Central Regional TAFE partners with other organisations to give our students more opportunities. We offer course-based and region-based scholarships as well as specific scholarships for Indigenous students.

Our Partners

Without the generous contributions of our partners, we would not be able to offer such an extensive scholarship program. 

If you would like to make a contribution or sponsor a student scholarship, please visit our Industry Partnership page.

We acknowledge the generous contributions of the following organisations and businesses who help make our scholarship program possible.

From some of our sponsorship recipients...

 

"TAFE really suits me because it's very hands-on. I really enjoy my course and it's really satisfying to work on a project and use the skills we are taught".
