Care2Achieve – Uni/TAFE scholarships for young women leaving state care

Financial, practical and personal support for young women leaving state care who are planning to study at University or TAFE.

In 2016, The Smith Family received important funding from the Queensland Government which has enabled it to expand its existing Learning for Life Tertiary Scholarship Scheme and create the Care2Achieve Scholarship for Young Women Leaving Care.

The Care2Achieve Scholarship is for young women moving out of state care in Queensland and planning to undertake higher education studies. To be eligible for the Care2AchieveScholarship you will either be a young woman leaving Year 12 who will be aged 18 in the commencement year of their studies, or a young woman who has already transitioned from Queensland State Care and who is aged up to 21. This may include those studying and seeking support. The value of the scholarship is up to $3,500 per annum, depending on the institution and course type.
