Schol­ar­ships for youth in hard­ship

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

YOUNG West Aus­tralians ex­pe­ri­enc­ing hard­ship due to so­cial cir­cum­stances or a dis­abil­ity can ap­ply for a range of ed­u­ca­tional schol­ar­ships to en­able them to con­tinue and suc­ceed in their ed­u­ca­tion.

The Young Aus­tralia League (YAL) is ac­cept­ing ap­pli­ca­tions from any­one aged be­tween 12 and 25 for schol­ar­ships worth up to $12,500 a year to cover ex­penses such as tu­ition fees, spe­cial­ist cour­ses, home tu­tor­ing, books, equip­ment and travel and liv­ing al­lowance.

YAL schol­ar­ships have been funded through a char­i­ta­ble en­dow­ment trust named af­ter the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s founder and prom­i­nent WA busi­ness­man and politi­cian, John Joseph Si­mons.

YAL Chair­man Frank Schaper said these bur­saries seek to make a dif­fer­ence in the lives of young men and women.
