The Sir Edward Dunlop International Students Emergency Fund (SEDISEF) is a community-based fund that provides short-term loans to International Students in universities, TAFE institutes and secondary schools in Victoria, Australia.

Applications for loans will be considered to overcome a short-term financial crisis or cover unexpected expenses which threaten a student’s ability to continue their studies.

These include accommodation needs (such as bond payments), food, clothing and medical costs or delays in accessing funds from the student’s home country during times of civil unrest, economic or political instability, family illness, bereavement or accident.
