We are excited to announce that applications for the 2023 Ailsa’s Legacy Youth Scholarships are now open and invite all children and young people in our HD community needing assistance to start, continue, or return to education in 2023 to apply.
We have a number of individual grants available this year of up to $2000 each for children and young people living with an HD affected parent or carer. These grants can be spent on anything that makes accessing education easier and more likely such as course or school fees, uniforms and shoes, computers, IT and software, school camps, school sports, extra tuition, extracurricular activities, transport, accommodation, and more.
We would like to encourage as many children and young people as possible to apply. We understand how important it is to stay engaged in education, but also know how challenging this can be when there is a lot more going on at home such as taking on extra responsibilities, stretched finances, and often less time to study and prepare, as can often be the case when a parent or carer is affected by HD.
If you can answer yes to the following 5 questions, you are eligible to apply.
- Are you under 25?
- Are you enrolled in school, university, TAFE (or another educational institution) or planning to be, in 2023?
- Are you living with an HD affected parent or carer (or have previously done so)?
- Do you live in NSW or the ACT?
- Would receiving this grant help you start, continue, or return to education in 2023?
