Applicants from Outer and Remote Queensland regions​

Queensland Academies does not have boarding facilities or manage a homestay program for domestic students.  However, the Queensland Academies Isolated Students (QAIS) Bursary (Bursary) provides financial support to families of students living away from home to attend one of the Department of Education’s three specialised Queensland Academies in South East Queensland including Queensland Academies Creative Industries Campus (Kelvin Grove), Queensland Academies Health Sciences Campus (Gold Coast) and Queensland Academy for Science Mathematics and Technology (Toowong).

The Bursary—for those who are not eligible for the Living Away From Home Allowance Scheme (LAFHAS)​—includes a travel and student accommodation allowance. Neither payment attracts GST and there is no financial means test.
