Scholarships for local university students

The Inland Rail Scholarship Program supports students from local communities through their full undergraduate course.

We have partnered with Charles Sturt University, the University of Southern Queensland and La Trobe University to offer scholarships to regional students pursuing studies and careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) and related fields.

Students who live along the Inland Rail route are invited to apply for scholarships valued up to $20,000, or the equivalent of $5,000 for every year of study during the undergraduate degree.

Indigenous people and those experiencing financial hardship are particularly encouraged to apply for assistance.
