Study Cairns is excited by the announcement by Federal Leichhardt MP Warren Entsch that 43 scholarships would be available to international and domestic students to study in Cairns and Far North Queensland next year. Our two Universities and many Vocational Education providers in Cairns and Far North Queensland had been provided $1.056 million to offer the scholarships through the Morrison Government’s $93.7 million Destination Australia program. The Destination Australia Program will provide scholarships worth $15,000 a year to students who study at a regional university or vocational education provider.
