EDUCATION / TRAINING GRANT
Young Carers in Education grants
The Young Carers in Education Grants are kindly funded by Soroptimist International, Perth. The grants are for young carers, aged 16 to 25 years old, who would like to attend further academic and/or vocational studies such as an apprenticeship, TAFE or university.
Through this annual grant, several young carers will be the lucky recipients to receive a share of the $3,000 donated each year by Soroptimist International, Perth. The grants can be used to assist with paying for course fees, textbooks, specialist equipment, and any other education related out of pocket expenses that may be incurred.
Applications for 2018 open Monday 22nd October and close Thursday 8th November 2018. All applicants will be notified of their outcomes by Thursday 29th November 2019.
The grants are aimed at young carers who wish to achieve their full educational potential. Although the grants do not to cover all educational costs, we believe any financial assistance will be of great benefit in assisting young carers to access and maintain their educational aspirations.
