Iglu Regional Scholarship

An Iglu Regional Scholarship offers rental assistance during your first year of living at Iglu.

Finding the ideal place to live while you study is just as important as selecting the right place to study. At Iglu, we want every student to have access to the best possible student living experience.

Our Iglu Regional Scholarship is designed to support regional students starting their undergraduate degree or tertiary qualification in Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane.

The scholarship provides eligible regional students from Australia and New Zealand with significant rental assistance at select Iglu properties during the first year of living with us.

We asked some of our Iglu Regional Scholarship recipients about their experiences with the scholarship program. Read more of our student stories here.

“The scholarship has helped both myself and my family majorly, taking away the financial burden that can be associated with moving out of home, allowing for the experience to be enjoyable in the absence of financial stresses.”

Aimee – Iglu Melbourne City
From Nathalia, Victoria

“If you’re thinking about moving to Iglu, I would say 100% go for it! The community is really friendly and welcoming, the apartments are awesome and you can walk to university. I can’t recommend Iglu enough!”

Max – Iglu Brisbane City
From Cairns, Queensland

“The scholarship allowed me to transfer to life away from home without stressing about the sudden financial commitments I was putting on my family. The cost of flying home is astronomical, so it definitely helped us.”

Siena – Iglu Kelvin Grove
From Yirrkala, Northern Territory

“Moving to Sydney was a massive change for me since I grew up in a country town, so the scholarship greatly allowed me to adjust to the city life and definitely helped a lot with the challenge of self-sustainment.”

Abdurrahim – Iglu Chatswood
From Griffith, New South Wales

“The scholarship has brought me stability and an opportunity to step into adulthood with the safety and simplicity of Iglu and its rooms. Without this scholarship I would be travelling a 6 hour round commute to uni each day.”

Jazabel (Jazz) – Iglu Mascot
From Maitland, New South Wales

“The Iglu Regional Scholarship meant I was able to worry less about necessities and rent, and could spend most of my attention and focus on my studies which is the main reason I’m in Melbourne to begin with.”

Marcus – Iglu South Yarra
From Auckland, New Zealand
