Financial Hardship Scholarships

The National Scholarship Foundation (NSF) was established by TAFE Directors Australia (TDA) to assist students who are motivated to complete their studies but are suffering financial hardship.

The NSF works in partnership with its members who are the Australian public providers of vocational education and training and this includes Durack. Its members assist with the application, selection and presentation of scholarships.

Permanent residency is an eligibility requirement for this scholarship.
