The Young Carer Bursary Program supports young carers to continue with their education and reduce their need to undertake paid work at the same time as their study and caring duties.
The program offers 1,592 bursaries of $3,768 each year to assist with education needs and resources.
Young carers must apply each year to be assessed for a bursary. It makes no difference if you complete your application on the first day or the final day because all Applications will go to the Independent Assessment Panel for review after the closing date on 12 September 2023.
Please note this process can take up to 16 weeks. You will be notified of the panel decision after the review process has been completed.
