From time to time local businesses, organisations or government offer scholarships and grants across various learning areas and study departments. They aim to help cover the tuition of your studies. We will list them here when they are open for application.

Lift Off Education Scholarships

The Lift Off Scholarship Program was established in 2014 as a response to the increasing number of our young people not able to afford the transition from secondary education to post-secondary education.

Scholarships are for students primarily aged 17 to 24 years who are attending, or have attended, secondary schooling in the following communities: Kyabram, Nathalia, Numurkah, Cobram, Mooroopna, Shepparton, Euroa and Rushworth, and who intend to enrol in university or TAFE in 2021.

Scholarships ranging from a one-off $2,000 to $10,000 paid incrementally over 3 years are available. Applications are now open and close Wednesday 16 December 2020.
