How do I apply for a Young Carer Bursary?
Young carers will need to submit a new online application each year. Applications are accepted for 6 weeks and usually open in late July. If you need help completing the application form, we suggest you ask your family, school, support worker or the Young Carer Worker in your state or territory.
Take your time to complete the form and answer all of the questions. It is very important to pay attention to the free text boxes at the end of the application, where you can tell us about your caring experiences and what difference it would make if you were to receive a bursary.
Only submit one application form – there is no advantage in submitting more because only one will be assessed.
Shortlisted applicants will need to prove their eligibility once the assessment process is complete. This eligibility evidence includes personal information about you and the person you care for. This information will be treated as confidential and your privacy will be protected.
Your application is considered on an individual basis each year. We encourage everyone to apply.
