State Government support for international students

RMIT would like to thank the Victorian Government for establishing a AU$45 million International Student Emergency Relief Fund to ensure Victoria’s international students are supported during this challenging time.

RMIT  is closed for applications to International Student Emergency Relief Fund.

If you are an international student in Victoria experiencing financial hardship, you may be eligible for emergency financial support through the Victorian Government’s Extreme Hardship Support Program.

The program is for temporary and provisional visa holders and undocumented migrants, including international students, who:

  • are experiencing significant hardship as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19)
  • have little or no income, savings or community support.

Please visit www.redcross.org.au/vicrelief to apply.

For further information on the range of support available to international students from the Victorian Government visit www.studymelbourne.vic.gov.au

RMIT financial support

RMIT’s Student Hardship Assistance and Equity Scholarship funds have been expanded to provide up to $10 million in support to students impacted by COVID-19.
