As well as federal and state government grants, students may receive financial support for their studies from other sources. Some will receive financial support from multiple sources including employers, family members, unions, professional associations, foreign governments, etc.
Just under 53% of employed non-school students (1.4 million) received financial support for their study including 26% who received some support directly from their employer (table 10.7). Both unemployed students (132,100) and students not in the labour force (363,100) received the same level of financial support (65%). However, the source of this support varied, with government being the main source of financial support for unemployed students, whereas for those not in the labour force approximately equal proportions received support from government and elsewhere.
