The aim of the Tertiary Assistance Program is to improve the capacity, knowledge, skills and overall education of our Members. The program provides financial assistance to students enrolled in TAFE or tertiary courses.

Each eligible Member will have up to $3000, depending on their level of study:

  • Cert I or Cert II = $1000 limit per Member
  • Cert III or Cert IV = $2000 limit per Member
  • Graduate Certificate or above = $3000 limit per Member

The student must be recognised as a Member or Beneficiary of the Trust to access funding. Any assistance provided would be paid directly to the goods or service provider or the educational institutions themselves. The program will run from 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2020.


Funds may be accessed to pay for course enrolment fees, as well as items listed below. All applications must provide proof of course enrolment, or acceptance if not yet enrolled, for the current semester. A tax invoice or quote must be sourced from the goods or service provider and sent to Gumala with the Tertiary application form.


Any registered Gumala Member or Beneficiary enrolled in a TAFE, university or nationally accredited course is eligible for this program. Applicants need to provide proof of enrolment studying Cert I or above for TAFE or a Graduate Certificate or Diploma level course or above for tertiary.
