Scholarships for youth in hardship
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.
