Funding for Families – families may be eligible for camps, sports and excursions funding
The CSEF scheme offers payments for eligible students to attend camps, sports and excursions. A sum of $125.00 is paid for eligible primary school students for an academic year. A sum of $225 is paid for eligible secondary school students for an academic year. Approximately 222,000 Victorian school students would directly benefit from the CSEF scheme.
It is worth noting that CSEF funding scheme does play a role in overall government funding to schools. This means that schools receive additional funds based upon the number of students who are CSEF eligible. This is why CSFE funding scheme can be beneficial to schools despite that that the allowance for each student may not be a large sum.
Families with a valid concession card or temporary foster parents are eligible to apply. In addition, families need to note that they need to apply for CSEF funding at the beginning of every year.
CSEF applications are processed according to the following criteria:
To be eligible for CSFE funding, a parent or a legal guardian of a student must:a) Be an eligible beneficiary within the meaning of the State Concessions Act 2004, that is, be a holder of Valid (1)Veterans Affairs Gold Card or be an eligible Centrelink Health Care Card (HCC) or Pensioner Concession Card (PCC) holder, OR
b) Be a temporary foster parent, and;
c) Submit an application to the College before 31 March Every year.
If your CSEF application is declined, the College will inform you of such outcome. You may then need to contact the government body, which issued the HCC to check valid dates and eligibility.
