Young Carer Bursary Program

About the Program

The Young Carer Bursary Program assists young carers aged 12-25 years to continue their education by providing financial assistance to reduce the need to undertake part-time work whilst studying and managing caring responsibilities.

The Program is being delivered by Carers Australia.

From 2020 the Government is providing $10.5 million over 3 years to fund around 1,000 annual bursaries valued at $3,000 each. Bursaries will be awarded to eligible young carers in the greatest need who apply during the advertised application periods.
