Bursaries & Subsidies

In order to ensure the discussions at the ACOSS National Conference in partnership with VCOSS are rich, robust and inclusive it is imperative that people with lived experience of the issues discussed are contributing to the conversation. We understand that for many individuals and small organisations the cost of conference registration can be prohibitive. For this reason, ACOSS and partners work together to establish a comprehensive bursary program that provides subsidised registration, travel and accommodation across a range of bursaries.

This page will be updated regularly as new bursaries are added.

Once you have completed your form, please email it to events@acoss.org.au
