Young Carer Bursary Program applications closed
Funded by the Department of Social Services, the Bursary Program supports young carers aged 12‑25 to engage or stay in education through the award of a $3,000 scholarship. Over 300 bursaries are available for the 2018 academic year, and in the application period Carers Australia received more than 1,100 applications.
These applications are now being considered by the Independent Assessment Panel, before deciding on who will be awarded a bursary. Young Carer applicants will be kept informed of application outcomes as they become available over the coming weeks.
