fees & scholarships
Details of the fees related to our training are provided in the relevant section of our current Prospectus.
In summary, the total cost of training includes tuition, administration and full board and lodging (for up to 50 weeks/year). For an individual student, this amounts to $20000 each year. For those with families, the component for board and lodging is obviously somewhat greater; specific figures are provided in the Prospectus.
This is obviously quite substantial and we are committed to making our courses as accessible even to those of limited financial means, through the provision of scholarships.
Cornerstone Community scholarships are available to all Australian students, based on demonstrated financial need. The amount available is dependent upon the degree of need, and the funds available for this purpose, and is provided as a subsidy towards the student's course fees. These scholarships are typically funded from our business income and from donations received for that purpose.
Typically, most students are eligible for a basic scholarship that covers a significant proportion of fees.
Those with very little or no income may be eligible for a full scholarship.
