The Commonwealth Scholarships Program for South Australia aims to improve skills and employment opportunities linked to priority industries in South Australia. It also creates opportunities for workers in industries experiencing structural adjustment and retrenchment.

The program delivers on the Australian Government’s 2016 election commitment to provide up to $24 million over four years for up to 1200 scholarships for undergraduate, postgraduate and vocational education and training students to undertake study, training and internships in South Australia.


The program will be administered through two rounds of applications, which will open in the second half of 2017.
