Disability Scholarship Program 2020

Are you a person with a disability who is studying a justice related course eg Law, Criminology, Social Work, Psychology, Paralegal or other justice related course?

The Program aims to achieve a sustained increase in the number of employed qualified people living with disability in the justice portfolio and across all areas and all levels of the public service.

The Program will offer three scholarships for people living with disability in Victoria at the diploma, advanced diploma, undergraduate or postgraduate level. Scholarships will only be offered for study at approved institutions within Victoria, or to Victorian residents who are engaged in accredited distance or online learning.

Scholarships will be awarded on merit, taking into account an applicant’s eligibility, past academic results, personal circumstances and ability to complete the course of study.

Scholarships will be provided to eligible students in the form of a fortnightly study allowance to support full-time study for a maximum of two years. Where part-time study is undertaken support will be provided for a maximum period equivalent to two years full-time study.
