JCU Access Fund
The JCU Access Fund could be the answer if money problems stand between you and a higher education at JCU. Reasons for financial hardship are considered in awarding these scholarships and bursaries. There are three different awards under the JCU Access Fund.

Access Scholarships are for full-time undergraduate students in their first year of study who are dealing with financial hardship.
The value is $5,000 paid in two equal instalments.
JCU Access Bursaries
Bursaries are also for full-time undergraduate students in their first year of study who are dealing with financial hardship.
The value is $1,500 paid in two equal instalments.
JCU Support Grants
These grants are for full-time students in their second year of study at JCU who are having financial difficulties.
The value is $500 credit with the JCU Bookshop.
