Grocery Voucher Bursary


ABOUT THE BURSARY

The Student Representative Council has committed a second round of funding to further assist undergraduate students experiencing financial hardship caused by COVID19.  The first round of SRC Grocery Vouchers provided a limited number of bursaries of $50 per application to assist with these expenses.  In this second round the SRC is increasing the bursary from $50 to $100 and allowing students who previously applied for the first round another opportunity to apply if they are still experiencing financial hardship due to COVID19.

The SRC Grocery Voucher Bursary has been put in place to assist students under significant financial hardship by providing cover for grocery expenses. All enrolled domestic and international students who fit the criteria are encouraged to apply.

The second round of the SRC Grocery Voucher Bursary will provide a limited number of bursaries of $100 per applicant (by way of a Coles or Woolworths voucher).

The SRC offers this assistance to students on the following basis:

    • no guarantee of the availability of bursaries in any particular trimester
    • this is once-off support only; no on-going support should be expected through this scheme.  Meaning you may only apply for one (1) bursary of $100 in round 2.
    • If you applied for and received a $50 Bursary through this scheme in T1, you are eligible to apply for another bursary in round 2.  You will need to complete a new application with your updated financial information.

This bursary is funded by the Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF) and administered by the Griffith University Student Representative Council.

Round 2 applications open July 13th, 2020.
