FACS High School Scholarships

Applications for the 2017 High School Scholarships are now closed. Successful recipients will be notified in May 2017.

We recognise that focusing on studies can be difficult when students are worried about money. FACS has introduced a new scholarship program to support students enrolled in education to complete their studies.

Over 200 scholarships will be on offer in the 2017 academic year, including 20 recipients who will also be eligible to receive both a scholarship and mentoring.

The scholarship program awards $1,000 to each recipient to help with school expenses. The funds will be administered through the student’s school or TAFE college and can be used to buy educational materials or services, such as:

  • text books, workbooks, study guides and stationery
  • specialist equipment (e.g. art, music or photographic materials)
  • course costs (including materials), excursions, study camps, sport
  • computer software and printer
  • internet
  • medical needs
