Students who live in public or community housing or who are at risk of homelessness are eligible to apply for a $1,100 Victorian Government scholarship.
There are 230 scholarships available, designed to assist with expenses such as books, laptops and course fees to help young people to continue their secondary education.
Students are eligible to apply for a scholarship if they are under 21 years of age, experiencing financial hardship, and living in social housing or at risk of homelessness. Students must be studying in Year 11 or Year 12 at a Victorian Government school – or the equivalent at TAFE – for the 2018 academic year.
Teachers are invited to nominate eligible young people in their school or TAFE. Applications can be made between 22 May and 30 June 2017.
