Young Carer Bursaries, 2017

The Young Carer Bursary Programme is an initiative of Carers Australia, funded by the Department of Social Services.

Applications for 2017 bursaries open on 2 August 2016, and close on 14 September 2016:
The aim of the Young Carer Bursary Programme is to help relieve the financial pressure on young carers to undertake part-time employment, in addition to managing their educational and caring responsibilities. 
The provision of a bursary increases the opportunity for young carers to remain in, or return to, education or training leading to improved employment opportunities and long-term finances. 
A bursary is similar to a grant. It is not a loan, and so does not need to be repaid.
If you are eligible you could receive an Australian Government Bursary of $3,000.
