Grampians students that started school this year can still apply for a scholarship worth up to $18,000.
Round five of the Australian Government's Rural and Regional Enterprise Scholarship program has scholarships available for eligible students who commenced study in 2021.
Federal Member for Wannon, Dan Tehan, said the funds could give young people from the Grampians a financial boost.
"If you haven't previously considered what financial support might be available, this is a fantastic opportunity for students from regional and remote communities," Mr Tehan said.
"Round five is still open to students who are undertaking courses from Certificate IV to PhD level and who started their study in 2021."
