NEW IN 2019: The Adam Scott Foundation and Youth Opportunities Foundation University Scholarship

The recipient may pursue studies in any academic discipline at any South Australian University and will receive financial support for the duration of their course.


School Based Scholarships

In 2017, Youth Opportunities launched a Scholarship Program aimed at helping past graduates reach their full potential, through assistance towards study goals and future career plans.

Graduates of the Personal Leadership Program who face financial or social difficulties and can demonstrate continued effort and progress toward achieving their goals can apply for a scholarship of up to $1,000. Scholarships are awarded in three categories; financial aid, career guidance and academic tutoring.

Since its inception we have awarded $87,000 in scholarships to 87 students.

In 2019 our scholarship program will be open to students from each of our schools across South Australia.


School Based Scholarship Donors

Youth Opportunities would like to thank the following donors for their generosity and support of the Scholarship Program:

Eureka Group

Kain Foundation

The Wyatt Trust

Graham Hobbs

Peter and Joan Marshman

Wes & Sue Seja

Stephen and Gill Hicks


If you are a Youth Opportunities student or have graduated from the Personal Leadership Program in the last two years, you are eligible to apply for a scholarship.

The next round of scholarships will open in 2019. To register your interest, contact your Youth Opportunities Trainer or School-based Coordinator.
