Overview

The ANU Students' Association's Parents and Carers grant is designed to assist undergraduate ANU students who are carers.
ANUSA recognizes that students who are carers can often face additional barriers to study dueto competing time priorities, increased financial commitments including childcare and at times barriers to connecting with the wider ANU community.

  • Be enrolled as a candidate for an ANU award on a part-time or full-time basis, of a 50% study load or more.
  • If a HECS Help-liable student, have deferred in full their HECS loan payment.
  • If the holder of a student visa, be able to demonstrate an unexpected change in financial circumstances since commencing the program of study.
  • Be able to demonstrate financial need.
  • Be able to demonstrate carer responsibilities.
  • Not be in receipt of a substantial scholarship, bursary or grant from any other source over $5,000.
