Tertiary Educational Bursaries

The City of Logan Tertiary Educational Bursary offers financial support for university students from Logan City.

We work with several organisations in south east Queensland to provide financial support to young people in Logan wishing to undertake tertiary studies. Students from families whose own financial resources are limited are encouraged to apply.

We award up to eight tertiary education bursaries each year. Successful students receive a $5,000 bursary that is provided in instalments for each semester (or trimester) of a three year course.

What criteria do I need to meet?

Applicants for the bursary need to meet these selection criteria:

  1. Be a resident of the City of Logan;
  2. Attending full time student at a secondary school within or adjacent to the City of Logan, or home schooled completing grade 12 in 2019;
  3. Intending to enrol in tertiary studies at a Queensland university in 2020;
  4. Must enrol as a full time, on-campus student for at least the first two years of a three year course, unless an on-campus, accelerated course is studied;
  5. Be likely to have their university offer confirmed by 17 January 2020
  6. In need of financial assistance

How is the decision made?

All applications that meet the Selection Criteria will be reviewed by a Selection Panel in January 2020. Applications will be rated according to academic ability, educational highlights, motivation to succeed, financial hardship and personal/social circumstances.

Recipient

  1. Recipients are not permitted to receive another bursary. If you receive our bursary and are offered a scholarship or bursary by another organisation or university, you must notify Logan City Council to cancel your bursary.
  2. The bursary can only be used for study at a Queensland University, while you are a student at that university.
  3. We will provide the successful recipients with $1,750 in the first year, $1,500 in the second year and $1,750 in the third year unless the university course structure is an 'accelerated' format. This can be used to purchase textbooks, stationery or other essential items for study.
  4. The recipient is required to submit their results to council@logan.qld.gov.au each semester/trimester before receiving the next instalment.
  5. If the recipient fails a subject, subsequent instalments will be paid proportionally based on subjects they passed.
  6. The bursary will be forfeited if you:
    1. fail the course,
    2. change to another tertiary institution in another state
    3. change to a lesser tertiary institution that is not a university
    4. change to a lesser course (not a degree course), or
    5. cancel your enrolment in the course.
