Flagship Scholarship - OzChild

Flagship Scholarship

Are you aged between 16-25 and looking for some extra support to pursue further training or education?

Thanks to the vision and generosity of the Pincus family, OzChild is proud to offer the inaugural Pincus Family Flagship Scholarship (PFFS) in conjunction with our Chance to Shine scholarships to offer greater support to young people.

It is the wish of the Pincus family to make scholarships available to young people, irrespective of gender, nationality, faith, creed or other persuasion, enabling them to pursue tertiary education that would otherwise be unavailable to them.

The scholarship is available for young people currently in care with OzChild or those who have recently left care and young people who have participated in one of our programs.

Applications now open 

Applications are now open for two scholarships to assist young people to pursue tertiary education or training.

The annual scholarship amount of $5,000-$8,000 will be awarded depending on the education requirement. Scholarship funds can be used to pay for items such as tuition fees, transport, accommodation and educational materials or tools.

We are now seeking applications from young people who meet the mandatory criteria.
