Indigenous Students

We are proud to be the chosen college for a number of Aboriginal students who are studying at Monash University. We have scholarships available to support Indigenous students, and host events and activities to recognise National Reconciliation Week and celebrate NAIDOC Week.

We are committed to supporting the accommodation needs and residential experiences of Indigenous students studying at Monash University, ensuring all feel culturally and socially supported while achieving academically. We strongly encourage and welcome applications from Indigenous students planning to study any course, in any faculty.

Financial Assistance

Indigenous students living at Mannix College may be eligible for ABSTUDY Residential Costs Option (RCO), managed by Centrelink. ABSTUDY RCO will cover all accommodation and meal costs in full for eligible Indigenous students, as well as provide a reduced fortnightly payment – whether Undergraduate or Graduate. There are College related expenses that are not covered by ABSTUDY (for example, social events organised by the Mannix College Students Club) so Indigenous students will be responsible for these non-compulsory charges.


Indigenous may be eligible to receive a scholarship from Mannix College. Applicants will be assessed by financial need. Learn more.
