The Holmesglen Foundation is offering financial assistance for current learners who are experiencing financial difficulty as a result of coronavirus. Available through the generosity of donors, this assistance is an important addition to other forms of support Holmesglen already provides to help learners continue their studies during these challenging times.
Whether you have lost your job or are struggling to access or remain in safe housing, or require assistance to purchase food, financial assistance grants are available to local and international students currently enrolled in any Holmesglen course.
Grants of up to $500 are available to assist with living costs such as food, rent and utilities.
All applications will be considered by the Holmesglen Foundation. The Foundation may match you with existing grants/scholarships for which you are eligible.
Grants will be distributed to eligible applicants who plan to continue and complete their studies with Holmesglen and who are assessed to demonstrate the greatest need. The aim is to provide emergency support where it is needed most.
To get support to you as soon as possible, the Foundation will assess applications each week on a rolling basis. Incomplete applications may delay consideration.
Applications close at midnight every Sunday. The Foundation will acknowledge applications received by the weekly closing date, including an estimate of when you should expect an outcome on your application. Typically, first-time applicants should expect to hear back within 7 working days. At this stage, outcomes and followups for repeat applicants may take some more time.

- demonstration of financial difficulty
- personal statements as outlined on the application form
- information provided as part of follow up contact or interviews.
The Foundation’s decision on any financial assistance application is final. Unfortunately, no correspondence concerning decisions can be entered into.
