Financial assistance

FEE-HELP

Australian students (and permanent humanitarian visa holders and some New Zealand citizens) may be eligible to apply for FEE-HELP, the Australian Government loan scheme that assists students with paying their tuition fees. For more information, see the ANU FEE-HELP page, or visit StudyAssist.

Support for Indigenous students

The ANU School of Legal Practice together with the National Centre for Indigenous Studies, may offer up to two awards known as the Indigenous Students' Practical Legal Training Scholarship. The objective of the award is to support Indigenous students who want to undertake practical legal training, which is required to become admitted as a lawyer. The award aims to offset some of the financial burden of undertaking this professional legal training. The award covers tuition fees for the duration of the student's Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice unless otherwise stated in the letter of offer.

The award is available each year to a prospective student who:

  • is an Australian citizen and a member of the Indigenous community;
  • has received an offer of admission for the Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice

Applications are open throughout the year. For more information and to apply, please visit the Indigenous Students' PLT scholarship page in the central ANU website.

Support for students in regional, rural and remote areas (RRR)

ANU School of Legal Practice is contributing to efforts to address the significant need for lawyers in regional, rural and remote (RRR) Australia. We strongly promote RRR placement opportunities during the GDLP and offer financial assistance and mentoring in support of students undertaking RRR legal practice experience. First arrange your RRR placement, then complete the  RRR Financial Assistance application form for financial assistance towards costs like travel and accommodation.
