Each donor organisation has a long commitment to the Australian student community. Each understands that textbooks are one of the most important tools for you to succeed in your degree.
In 2011, the fund's second year, $63,000 will be distributed to students as a rebate for purchasing new textbooks.
All students studying at an Australian university or TAFE are eligible to apply.
Distribution of funds will be by a random draw held on April 1, 2011. Distributions will be made in $200 amounts. As a project coordinated by StudentVIP, joining StudentVIP is a condition of the application.
Successful applicants will be notified by email and listed on the recipients page. Recipients will have six months to redeem their rebate with the presentation of a textbook receipt(s) from an on-campus bookseller to the value of at least $200. Any unclaimed funds will automatically be rolled into the 2012 fund.
