Young Carer Bursary Program
About the Program
The Young Carer Bursary Program assists eligible young carers aged 25 years and under to continue or return to study. The Program aims to relieve the financial pressure on young carers to undertake part-time work in addition to their educational and caring responsibilities.
The Program is being delivered by Carers Australia.
The Government is providing $4.5 million over 4 years to fund around 330 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.
Applications for 2018 bursaries will be open from 27 July to 7 September 2017.
