PARSA may provide currently enrolled post-graduate Indigenous students with up to $300 per semester to assist with the costs of health and well-being related services.


  • Be currently enrolled as a post-graduate at the ANU
  • Be supported by the Tjabal Indigenous Higher Education Centre
  • Be actively engaged with a health, fitness or mental health service

  1. Proof of enrolment (ISIS confirmation)
  2. Evidence of support from the Tjabal Indigenous Higher Education Centre
  3. Evidence of appointment/registration/booking costs including payment details for relevant service provider.

PARSA Student Assistance Team will determine, based upon the application, if a student qualifies for the grant and the amount granted.
