National Scholarship Program

The National Scholarship Program celebrates the talents and strengths of young people in Australia who exhibit extraordinary promise but lack the support and resources to fulfil their potential.
Every year over 25 young people throughout Australia are awarded Youth Off The Streets scholarships valued at $6,000 to pursue further education or training and work towards a positive future. In addition, each recipient is matched with a mentor who provides guidance and support during their scholarship.

Nominations are invited from any young person in Australia who is aged 16 to 21 inclusive (as of 20 September 2023) with genuine talent, ability and/or determination in any education or training course, including (but not limited to): academic skills; visual or performing arts; sport; trade skills; and music. Further details about eligibility criteria can be found on our website.
Nominations must be made by the young person themselves; however, assistance in completing the nomination is encouraged and is your opportunity to help a young person follow their dreams.
Please visit to read the Nomination Guidelines and Conditions and complete a 2023 National Scholarship Program Application Form.
Nominations close at 4 pm on Friday 12 May 2023.
