Scholarships for emergency management volunteers

Applications have opened for round three of the federal government’s emergency volunteer education scholarships.

The scholarships are available for eligible volunteers to undertake accredited vocational and higher qualifications in emergency and disaster management.

The aim of the program is to ensure volunteers and their agencies are best equipped to prepare for and respond to disasters.

Volunteers can receive up to $12,000 for completing vocational education and training and up to $25,000 for higher education.

The Australian Institute for Disaster Resilience (AIDR) administers the scholarship fund on behalf of the Australian Government.
