Education and workplace grants

28 August 2020
Please note: These grants are fully funded and no longer available.

Grants are now open to support the studies of young people (aged 15-25) living in bushfire affected areas. Grants up to $3000 are available. These will support the educational development and workplace aspirations of these young people.

It’s a $2 million contribution from the National Bushfire Appeal, matched with a further $2 million from The Salvation Army.

Eligible recipients who meet the grant criteria can use the grants to cover:

  • Out of pocket expenses for:
    • Government courses;
    • TAFE programs;
    • Transition courses; or
    • Other identified educational programs.
  • Purchase of study-related or employment-related materials such as laptops, books or tools;
  • Transport costs to and from employment;
  • The purchase of safety equipment for courses; or
  • Personal needs for improving employment interview presentation.
