Young Carer Bursary Program continues in 2018
Minister Jane Prentice recently announced another year of funding for the highly successful Young Carer Bursary Program that Carers Australia has been running for the last 3 years.
The Young Carer Bursary Program supports young carers aged 12-25 through the award of $3,000 to assist with the costs of education. In 2017 over 340 young carers were awarded a bursary.
Carers Australia will be accepting applications for the 2018 round of bursaries from the 27 July through to 7 September 2017.
