The opportunity of an education is empowering and gives people hope for a better future
Mind Scholarship Program
Many people who access our services first experience symptoms of mental ill-health between the ages of 15-20, a crucial time in both education and employment. The purpose of the Mind Scholarship Program is to support and encourage our clients to take up or resume studies which may have been deferred due to their ill-health.
The Scholarship Program provides financial assistance for study related expenses such as fees and books, up to a total of $1500 per individual. Scholarships help people who otherwise do not have the opportunity to enhance their recovery through education and learning. Ultimately the Scholarship Program builds confidence and self-reliance and often leads to meaningful employment.
Please note the Scholarship Program is only available to Mind clients.
