How to Get Education or Training Support

Education & Training Support Via The Kids Under Cover Scholarship Program

By assisting young people with educational expenses, such as travel textbookst books, and equipment, they can continue their studies or train for employment. Education has a substantial positive impact on confidence, self-esteem and employment prospects.

The Kids Under Cover Scholarship Program helps young people who have the passion and motivation to continue education but don’t have the resources. All young people and their siblings taking part in our Studio Program are eligible to apply when enrolled in school, in TAFE, in university or in job training.

The program is designed to encourage young people to remain engaged with education and training and to help enable those wanting to further their studies.

Kids Under Cover, working in partnership with the Department of Health and Human Services, also administers the DHHS Student Scholarship Program.
