Claim ABSTUDY for 2019 now!

1 October 2018

Claiming before December will mean you’re ready to start your studies on time.

ABSTUDY helps Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians with the costs of studying or doing an Australian Apprenticeship.

You may get help with the cost of:

  • study
  • housing
  • living expenses
  • travel between your home and place of study, if you need to study away from home

You can submit your claim as soon as you know what date you’ll start studying. Claiming early will help you be ready for the start of Term 1. 

If you need to move away from home to study, getting your claim in early is very important. It’ll help you organise your ABSTUDY Fares Allowance travel as early as possible.
