Applications are only assessed at the last stage of the SPCR protocol, when all other avenues of support have been considered – this means applicants will be referred to their education institution, and/or the relevant consulate, business council or association to discuss additional support before their application is considered. Once an applicant has completed all stages of the protocol, they are eligible to apply for SPCR.
For eligible students whose applications are approved for SPCR, StudyPerth will provide Coles or Woolworths vouchers and/or directly pay two weeks’ rent. If students still require additional support after they have received assistance from StudyPerth, they are welcome to apply for SPCR again.
Applications for SPCR are considered on an individual basis, and are only for residents of Western Australia (e.g. student must be renting accommodation in WA).
