School and Beyond Program
Applications close: Ongoing
Funding Provider: Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal
Aims to keep 2009 bushfire-affected students in school or engaged in vocational education training and ultimately employment. It has been designed to ensure those in greatest need receive support, but with the minimum amount of bureaucracy.
Funds can be accessed for:
- Items required to participate in education such as books, uniforms, travel costs (where this is the primary barrier to participation)
- Funding for tutors to support students
- Course or program fees (where not subsidised)
- A program or activity which aims to engage a group of young people in education, training, or employment pathways and which builds their vocational and personal skills, such as a Barista training course or job interview skills.
