Camps Sports Excursions Funds (CSEF)

Friday 19 February, 2016

IMPORTANT Parent Funding Information
The Victorian Department of Education and Training (Vic DET) has announced that there will be a change to the timing of the Camps, Sport and Excursions Fund (CSEF) in 2016. Applications for funding are now open and you are encouraged to submit an application if eligible.
The CSEF was introduced by the newly-elected Victorian Government in 2015 to replace the Education Maintenance Allowance (EMA).
To be eligible the student, or the parent or legal guardian of the student must:
  • be an eligible beneficiary within the meaning of the State Concessions Act 2004, that is, be the holder of a Veterans Affairs Gold Card or be an eligible Centrelink Health Care Card (HCC) or Pensioner Concession Card (PCC), or
  • be a temporary foster parent of the student, and
  • submit an application to the school by the due date (Friday 26th February 2016).
Where a student is eligible to receive funding under the CSEF, the school will receive $125.00 for primary school students and $225.00 for secondary school students. For schools that submit funding applications prior to Tuesday 1 March 2016, CSEF payments will be transferred to the school during March. Payments for later applications will be sent to schools as they are received.
