The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is currently offering a Student Scholarships Program to help at-risk young people in Victoria to get the support they need to stay in school.

Funded by the Victorian Government, the scholarships are aimed at young people living in public or community housing or at risk of homelessness and is designed to help these students stay engaged with education and complete years 11 and 12 at secondary school or TAFE.

Scholarship money can be used for textbooks, computer equipment, public transport, disability aids or other items that assist with their education.

Applications for 2017 scholarships are open until 24 June 2016. For more information or to apply, head here.
