Destination Australia Scholarship

What is the Destination Australia scholarship?

The Destination Australia Program (DAP) is an Australian Government program that funds eligible tertiary education providers to offer scholarships to domestic and international students to study in regional Australia. Destination Australia scholarships are available to students studying courses ranging from a Certificate IV through to a doctorate (such as a PhD) for up to four years in regional campus locations across Australia. This means any location outside of major cities in Australia.

Applications for 2024 are now open. You can view the list of providers here.
