Grants available for high school students to attend Open Day

Travel grants are available for Year 11 and 12 students planning to attend one of six Open Days hosted by Charles Sturt in August and September.

  • Travel grants are available to allow Years 11 and 12 students to attend Charles Sturt Open Days
  • Individual grants are valued up to $150 and school grants valued up to $150 per car or $300 for a bus
  • Charles Sturt Open Days start in Port Macquarie on Sunday 1 August and run in six locations

Charles Sturt University is offering Years 11 and 12 students a helping hand to attend the University’s upcoming Open Days.

The Charles Sturt Open Day series starts in Port Macquarie on Sunday 1 August and will run across six locations over five weeks, with the last to be held in Dubbo on Saturday 4 September.

Travel grants of up to $150 are available now to make it easier for students to travel to their closest campus from within NSW or interstate.

Charles Sturt’s Division of Students Executive Director Mr Shawn Walker said the travel grants make Open Days accessible to a wider range of students.

“Schools in the past have indicated the travel grants have reduced the cost of attending Open Day, therefore making a substantial difference to students who may otherwise not have been able to attend,” he said.

“We want a range of students to attend the Open Days to experience what life at Charles Sturt University can offer.

“It has been a tough 18 months with droughts, floods and COVID-19 but we don’t want that to be an obstacle for students now considering their future and tertiary education.”

Students registering for Open Day can tick the box to state they would like to be considered for a travel grant.

The Charles Sturt Recruitment team will then email students to confirm the outcome and provide instructions on what is next.

Students will receive the grant in the form of Ampol (Caltex service station) e-vouchers via email on the Monday following the Open Day they attend.

A limited number of grants are available so students are encouraged to register early.

School grants of up to $150 per car or $300 for a bus are also available.

Schools can contact to see if they are eligible.

To register, visit the Open Day page on the Charles Sturt website, click on the campus you wish to visit and book a spot.
