Chance to Shine Scholarship
The Chance to Shine Scholarship provides support to children and young people who need it most.
The purpose of the Chance to Shine Scholarship is to provide individual funding opportunities for OzChild children and young people aged 5-18 years who are experiencing challenges and/or disadvantage which impacts their educational progression.
With the Coronavirus crisis affecting many Australian households, at-risk children and young people have become increasingly vulnerable. With the help of the Chance to Shine Scholarship, much needed financial support will now be available to those students who need it most.
Scholarships are awarded four times a year, opening in February, May, August and November.
Thanks to the support of our philanthropic partners, OzChild is able to support children and young people through the Chance to Shine Scholarship program
