Camps, Sports and Excursions Fund (CSEF) Application Form

The CSEF is provided by the Victorian Government to assist eligible families to cover the costs of school trips, camps and sporting activities.  

If you hold a valid means-tested concession card or are a temporary foster parent, you may be eligible for CSEF.  The allowance is paid directly to the school to use towards expenses relating to camps, excursions or sporting activities for the benefit of your child.

The annual CSEF amount per student is:

  • $225 for secondary school students.

Commencing 2018 the requirement for parents to complete and submit a new application form each year has been removed.  Parents that received CSEF at the school in 2017 do not need to complete an application form in 2018 unless any of the following changes have occurred:

  • new student enrolments: your child has started or changed schools in 2018 or you did not apply at the same school in 2017; or
  • changed family circumstances: such as a change of custody, change of name, concession card number, or new siblings commencing at the school in 2018.


If a form was not lodged in 2017, parents or legal guardians are required to complete a CSEF application form and lodge it with their child’s school for processing.

Application forms should be completed and lodged with schools as soon as possible in Term One, as payments are made from March onwards. However schools will be able to accept and process applications up until the end of Term Two each year.

CSEF payments are for the current application year and cannot be claimed retrospectively for prior years.
