SAFETY NET REVIEW COMMITTEE

The Safety Net Grant Scheme provides financial assistance for (both domestic and international) students currently enrolled at the University of Tasmania. It is designed to provide temporary assistance to students who are experiencing unexpected financial hardship, which is adversely affecting their academic study. The main criteria for assistance under the Scheme are that a student demonstrates a genuine need and that capacity for continued study may be in jeopardy if the student’s financial situation is not resolved. It is a one-off payment, not a loan. You may apply for assistance with costs incurred in everyday basic living, although the grant is not aimed at providing ongoing financial support. The grant also offers assistance with payment of reading texts and other materials for study. Only one application per year is allowed, except in exceptional circumstances.  Therefore, as a member of the Safety Net Review Committee you will be determining what students are granted funding from this scheme.
