Indigenous Away From Base (AFB) Funding Program
AFB funding is provided by The Department of Industry, Innovation, Climate Change, Science, Research and Tertiary Education (DIICCSRTE or Innovation) to assist eligible Australian Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander students to participate in the necessary academic components of an approved course, where that course requires students to travel from their permanent home or study location to undertake their studies. AFB funding covers fares, meals and accommodation only.
