If your parent or grandparent served in the ADF, you might be eligible for a scholarship to support your tertiary studies and help you achieve your career aspirations. RSL Queensland Scholarships provide financial support to students who have overcome challenges in their lives and demonstrated their determination to gain a tertiary qualification.

 

“Working 25 hours a week and trying to do 40 hours a week of Uni really takes a toll on you. Being able to just focus on my degree and my work, honestly it's a bit of a life-changer! ” – Rhiannon, Scholarship recipient.
