Kids Under Cover is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to preventing youth homelessness.
We offer young people the unique combination of supported housing options with scholarships
Kids Under Cover supports vulnerable young people at risk of homelessness by building studios
There are many ways to get involved and help at-risk young people and their families.
Kids Under Cover’s strategy of complementing the provision of stable and secure accommodation with educational support has proven to be a simple yet effective approach to the long-term prevention of youth homelessness.
Our scholarships give young people the support they need to stay in school. This is not just by helping financially with educational expenses, but also by preventing the social exclusion that can haunt young people who miss out on camps, excursions or other school social activities due to lack of funds.
The Kids Under Cover Scholarship Program helps young people who have the passion and motivation to continue education but don’t have the resources.
If you have not yet confirmed your enrolment in education for next year, but you are interested in further study, this scholarship could be right for you!
The Ken & Lenka Morgan Scholarship is a one-off scholarship to the value of $5,000 awarded to ONE exceptional young person who is supported by our Studio Program. The scholarship can be used to assist you to pursue your personal, educational and career goals. For example, career counselling driving lessons, short life skills courses (i.e. first aid training, public speaking, RSA, etc.), creative and sporting pursuits (i.e. music lessons or tennis coaching) and international or national volunteer placements.
