The Youth InterACT Scholarships (Scholarships) provides funding of up to $500 for individuals, or $1,500 for groups of young people to participate in an activity, event or program. This may include online mental health, self-improvement programs or skills-based learning courses or training that enhances personal or career development, including participating in sporting activities, community or civic engagement activities or events. Scholarships may also help to cover resources, equipment and materials to stay engaged in learning and personal development course or training.

These Scholarships provide a small amount of funding to support and encourage young people to enhance their professional and personal development through participation in various activities or events.

Scholarships will be awarded to young people who have a genuine ability and determination, but without financial assistance would struggle to attend their event or activity.

Scholarships will also be awarded to young people to enable them to remain connected and engaged.

The Youth InterACT Scholarship assessment process generally takes six weeks to complete depending upon the number of applications received. All applicants will be advised of the outcome of their application. When submitting a scholarship application, you must factor in six weeks from the start date of the event/project. Applications received with an event start date that is less than six weeks will be deemed ineligible.

Eligibility

Scholarships are available to young people aged 12 to 25 years who have a genuine ability and determination, but without financial assistance would struggle to attend their event or activity. Applicants must live in the ACT or attend school/higher education institution in the ACT and must also:

  • be an Australian Citizen, a Permanent Resident of Australia or hold an
    ACT Services Access Card;
  • be representing the ACT in sporting or other activities or be a part of an ACT based program; and
  • not received a Scholarship or funding through the Youth InterACT Grant Program in the last year.
  • When submitting a scholarship application, you must factor in six weeks from the start date of the event/project. Applications received with an event start date that is less than six weeks will be deemed ineligible.

Applications are open all year so you can apply for the Scholarships at any time. We recommend you submit your application six weeks before the event, activity, or program you would like to participate in.
