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 is proud to offer scholarships through our partnership with Open Universities Australia to young people living with a Kids Under Cover studio.
Eligible young people affiliated with Kids Under Cover will be able to select from one of two scholarships programs:
For students who aren’t quite ready to tackle university head on. OUA’s series of subjects prepare students to learn “how to be a uni student”. This program will give students the tools to undertake university studies with confidence. Topics cover: study skills; academic skills; conceptual understandings; persistence; self-management and commitment.
The scholarship will cover the tuition and textbook costs for 1 to 4 enabling subjects, provided the recipient demonstrates academic progression, building their confidence and capability to complete a university degree.
OUA can then help the recipient find a degree to suit their career aspirations and assist them with access a government loan to support their ongoing study plans.
Applications Open – 06/05/2019
Applications Close – 12PM, 15/05/2019
Targeting students with academic confidence, OUA’s scholarship will cover the tuition and textbook costs for 1 to 4 entry level subjects. These subjects are credit-bearing and can be attributed to the completion of a degree program if that is the desired outcome of the recipient. OUA can then help the recipient find a Commonwealth Supported Place in a degree and University (from our University partners) of their choosing for which the student can access a government loan to support their ongoing study plans.
