Higher Education Support Act 2003

Chapter 2 - Grants for higher education assistance etc  

Division 8 - Introduction  

SECTION 8-1   What this Chapter is about  


This Chapter provides for who are higher education providers, and for 4 kinds of grants to be made.

Part 2-1 sets out who are higher education providers (universities, self-accrediting entities and non self-accrediting entities), the quality and accountability requirements for higher education providers and how bodies cease to be higher education providers.

Note:

Except in very limited cases, only higher education providers can get grants under this Chapter.

The 4 kinds of grants available under this Chapter are:

  • · grants under Part 2-2 (Commonwealth Grant Scheme) to certain higher education providers. These grants are paid in relation to Commonwealth supported places. Grants are made subject to conditions; and
  • · grants under Part 2-2A to Table A providers and Table B providers to assist Indigenous students; and
  • · other grants under Part 2-3 to higher education providers and other bodies corporate for a variety of purposes; and
  • · grants for Commonwealth scholarships to certain higher education providers under Part 2-4 .
  • The amount of a grant may be reduced, or an amount paid may be required to be repaid, if the recipient breaches a quality and accountability requirement or a condition of the grant (see Part 2-5 ).

    Note:

    A body's approval as a higher education provider may be suspended or revoked for such a breach.

    This Chapter also provides for the direct payment to students of certain Commonwealth scholarships under Part 2-4 .
