Young Carers Scholarship Program 2018

Carers Victoria is proud to present the 2018 Young Carer Scholarship program supported by the Barr Family Foundation and community donations.

About the scholarship program
Over 71,600 young people in Victoria are believed to have significant care responsibilities. They may support their mother, father, sister, brother or grandparent at home because of a disability or illness. Many are at risk of dropping out of school, or have difficulty establishing social networks and participating in activities that their peers enjoy.

Carers Victoria’s Young Carer Scholarship program gives young carers attending secondary school the opportunity to be acknowledged for their contributions to their family and the community and to participate in school or community based activities that enhance their skills, educational achievement and abilities, or that help them to participate more fully in their community.

Scholarships of up to $500 are awarded to successful applicants.
