The Parliament and Civics Education Rebate (PACER) provides a travel subsidy to schools to help students financially.
In order to be eligible for this rebate, the students must visit and participate in education programs (where possible) at Parliament House, Old Parliament House and/or the Electoral Education Centre and the Australian War Memorial as part of their civics and citizenship curriculum.
This program is funded by the Australian Government Department of Education, Science and Training. Rates of the subsidy are from $20 – $260 per student depending on distance travelled to the National Capital and is indicated in the below diagram. The program benefits students in Years 4–12 living further than 150 kilometres from Canberra.
Application for the PACER rebate must be made prior to your school’s departure to Canberra. Not all excursions to Canberra are eligible for PACER, so be sure to read the guidelines carefully before submitting your school’s applications. All relevant information will be forwarded to you inside your tour pack no later than 6 weeks prior to your school’s departure.
