Member for Gilmore, Ann Sudmalis is encouraging community groups and local training providers to apply for a share of the Turnbull Governments $16.7 million Regional Study Hubs Program – Mrs Sudmalis said “Applications are now open for up to eight regional areas to receive funding to establish a regional study hub.”
“The opportunity to boost higher education access for local students in some of our more remote areas of the region is just another example of how this Government is improving our education system.”
“I know transport is an issue in Gilmore, so I’m working on initiatives to improve ways people can access a quality education.”
“A local study hub would make it easier for students to study without having to leave the area and I hope our community can band together to apply for this extra support.”
Applicants for funding are expected to demonstrate cash or in-kind contributions from the community and/or government to support the study hubs.
To be eligible for funding, a study hub must have a formal relationship with at least one Australian registered higher education provider.
Applications close at 5pm on 27 July 2018.
