Indigenous Student Success Program (ISSP)

Performance Reports

The Indigenous Student Success Program (ISSP) is a Commonwealth funding initiative that provides supplementary funding to universities to help students take on the demands of university and succeed.

Universities can offer scholarships, tutorial assistance, mentoring, safe cultural spaces, and other personal support services. The flexibility of the ISSP assists universities to tailor their services to match student needs. ISSP funding is particularly prioritised towards the support of Indigenous students who are financially disadvantaged and/or from remote and regional areas.

Universities receive ISSP funding based on enrolments, unit success rates and course completions of Indigenous students. A special loading also recognises the additional costs associated with assisting Indigenous students from regional and remote areas.
