Further Education Bursary

Each year, Vision Australia awards Further Education Bursaries to a select number of students who are blind or have low vision.

The bursaries provide adaptive technology to help the students fully participate and succeed in their chosen studies.

Assistive technology can eliminate barriers to education and enhance access to information. It enables students to read course material, conduct research and improve their student life.

Since the inception of the bursary scheme in 1996, over 420 students have been supported in their further education journey. Meet 2020 and prior years' recipients.


Applications for the 2021 bursary are now closed

Applications for the 2022 bursary are scheduled to open on 1 July 2021.
