Thank you for joining the mailing list!
You will need to submit an application online during the 6 week application open period, starting in late July.
A new application must be submitted each year you wish to be considered. Only one application per young carer is accepted.
Login or create an account to submit an application. Applications can only be submitted during the application period. Early and late applications are not accepted.
The application has 5 sections with multiple choice answers and a free text response at the end. Questions include:
How long have you been caring?
How many people do you care for?
Where do you live?
What course will you be studying?
What is your household income?
Save each page as you go
Answer all of the questions
Complete the free text boxes in the last section. This is where you can tell us about your caring experiences and what difference the bursary will make to your education
All applications submitted are assessed. There is no benefit in trying to submit your application before others
If you need help, ask!
Teachers, support workers, parents are good people to ask for help.
For general queries you can call the bursary team on 1800 756 238.
