Overview of Fee Assistance
Good value is a high priority for students generally. It’s especially important for those who need to live away from home. Finding comfortable lodging at a good price can be hard. So grants can assist students in making ends meet. Fee assistance can even help you make a good choice. Grace College subsidies can help your budget. They can also allow you to be part of a supportive community. That’s great value!

- UQ Young Achievers’ Accommodation Grants (1)

Like all Grace College residents, our Entry Scholars come from diverse backgrounds. They have diverse interests. The thing they have in common is that want to be part of a supportive community. They want not only to receive support from others. They also want to be a support for others. That’s what makes the Grace College student accommodation community work. Everybody wants to be a part of a community. Everybody wants to belong. Everybody wants to help others belong.
