Information for Employees
Build your skills, capabilities and career options with a nationally accredited Diploma qualification that is equivalent to the first year of a Monash University degree.
The Federal Government is providing funding of $10,000 per employee over two years* to help women study part-time while working. The funding is provided to employers, who may choose to use it to offset some of the costs of your Diploma. If your employer uses all the funding for tuition fees, there will be no additional tuition costs for you or your organisation.
Some employers will need to use the funding (in full or part) to offset the cost of you studying on work time. If this is the case, you will need to pay for the cost of your Diploma: see Women in STEM Fees.
*employers receive $10,000 per employee in Federal Government funding in four instalments over two years provided employees meet the course requirements
