The value is $5,000 paid in two equal instalments.

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.
