Student Hardship Fund / Support Payments

This fund is now open to all students enrolled for onshore study in UniSA at all levels. We understand that the current situation has impacted many through the loss of employment and other unexpected costs. The fund has been established to assist those most in need of support right now and complements the wide range of support available across the University.

Just because you’re stuck inside, doesn’t mean USASA can’t keep supporting you in your personal & professional development goals.⁠

The USASA Leadership and Club Grants Programs are taking applications for the April Round.⁠

There are plenty of professional development opportunities available online, and some conferences have even switched to totally online delivery.⁠

Here's what you need to know:⁠
  • April round open until midnight Friday, 24 April
  • You need to have a meeting with a USASA staff member via Zoom once you have submitted your application.
  • In line with the government travel bans, USASA will not be supporting any initiatives that require any significant travel (even within South Australia) and would be hesitant to support any face-to-face delivery unless you can justify it as being essential.⁠
Stuck for ideas?
  • Try searching online for your area of interest.
  • Try adding keywords such as,
    “online delivery”, “webinar”, “virtual” etc.⁠⁠
