COVID-19 Grant

The ANU Students’ Association COVID-19 Grant is designed to provide financial assistance to eligible enrolled students who are recently required to isolate because they have received a positive COVID-19 test result, awaiting result, or are a close contact. The main criteria for this grant is a demonstration of a genuine financial need i.e. loss of income/increased expenses and being deemed ineligible for government COVID-19 support payments. The maximum amount available is $750 per semester

ANUSA recognises that the students who are not eligible for COVID-19 government support (e.g. Pandemic Leave Disaster payment, COVID-19 hardship payment, or similar) as a result of their residency, age, parental income, or any other such criteria are disproportionally disadvantaged. In pursuit of social justice and equitable distribution of resources, this grant is available for students who are not getting COVID-19 financial support from the government, university, scholarship providers or similar.

To be eligible, the student must be enrolled as an ANU Undergraduate and be able to demonstrate financial need. An ANUSA COVID-19 Grant may be used to cover:

  • Medical expenses- i.e. medical appointments and medical supplies
  • Living expenses i.e. groceries, rent, utility bills
