A funding increase of almost $10 million by the Australian Government will allow Carers Australia to increase the number and value of bursaries awarded through the Young Carer Bursary Program.

The Young Carer Bursary Program supports young carers aged 12-25 to continue with their education while caring for a loved one.

The program now offers around 1,600 bursaries of $3,768 each year to help with education needs and resources.

Young carers can apply for next year’s Young Carer Bursary Program from 18 July 2023.

To apply, visit the Young Carers Network.
