Are you a young carer?
Are you aged between 12 – 25 years?
Are you currently studying or wishing to return to study or training?
If so, you may be eligible to apply for a young carer bursary!
Some young carers are missing out on education or training because of the emotional and financial pressures they face. The Young Carer Bursary Programme will help to reduce financial pressure and support young carers to complete, or return to education or training whilst continuing in their caring role. If you are eligible, you could receive an Australian Government Bursary of $3,000. The bursaries can be spent on whatever you need to help you with your education at school, university or in training.
When: Applications close on Monday 28 September 2015
