YOUTH OFF THE STREETS - $6,000 Scholarship

Youth Off The Streets is a non-denominational community organisation working for young people who are facing challenges of homelessness, drug and alcohol dependency, exclusion from school, neglect and abuse. We provide a range of services to support these young people as they work to turn their lives around.
It is our belief that education is the key to breaking the cycle of disadvantage and poverty that traps so many of the young people we work with. Our National Scholarship Program is a way in which we offer young people in Australia an opportunity to achieve their best.
National Scholarship Program
The National Scholarship Program celebrates the talents and strengths of young people in Australia who exhibit extraordinary promise but lack the personal support networks and resources that will allow them to fulfil their potential.
Every year over 20 young people throughout Australia are awarded scholarships valued at $6,000 to pursue further education or training so they may realise their potential for a positive future. In addition each recipient and their guest will be brought to Sydney to attend a special award ceremony in October 2018 to be formally acknowledged of their achievement.
Who can be nominated?
Nominations are invited from young people aged 16 to 21 inclusive with genuine talent, ability and determination in any education or training course, including (but not limited to): academic skills; visual or performing arts; sport; trade skills; and music.
Nominations must be made by the young person themselves; however assistance in completing the nomination is encouraged and is your opportunity to help a young person follow their dreams.  

Nominations close on Friday, 6 April 2018 at 4pm.
