There are two other payment programs for international students that will open soon for applications.
One is the Government’s $1,500 Accommodation Subsidy and the other is a $1,500 ELICOS Bursary. Any student who has received the Self-Quarantine payment can also apply for the other payments – although the eligibility criteria is a little different for each payment.
To be eligible for the $1,500 Accommodation Subsidy you need to be studying in WA for a course at least a year in length and studying full-time in WA during semester one 2022 – your education provider confirms that is the case.
To be eligible for the $1,500 ELICOS Bursary, you must be studying an English language course that is 20 weeks or longer, and you have to be 10 weeks into your course before you can get the payment – this is again checked with your education provider.
When these payment programs are closer to being launched and we have more information, we will do another Q&A on them, to help you work out if you can apply.
