Disability Scholarship

The Australian Disability and Indigenous Peoples’ Education Fund Scholarship is Now Open

The Australian Disability and Indigenous Peoples’ Education Fund is now open for applications with the deadline for this round being March 31, 2023.

Closing dates are every six months at the end of March and September annually.

Established by Frank Hall-Bentick AM (and his sisters Lesley and Annette and a group of friends Rae, Lyndall, Cath, Ros and Jody) in 2008, the Australian Disability and Indigenous Peoples’ Education Fund (ADIPEF) was created following Frank’s involvement in disability advocacy over thirty years.

Assisting Indigenous and Non-Indigenous People with Disability

Assisting indigenous and non-indigenous people with disability to participate in both formal and informal education programs through small grants, the fund empowers people with disability through further education and learning (both formal and informal).

Based on the belief that education’s important should not be measured by graduate degrees, diplomas or salaries, but by achievements, contributions, paths taken and careers followed – including cultural, relationship, historical and tolerance learnings.

This education fund assists in this through providing small, six monthly grants of up to $2,500 to assist people with disabilities to continue their learning.

  • People with disabilities of any age living in Australia may apply for any assistance to help with both formal and informal education.
