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.


If you are a Youth Opportunities student that has graduated from the Personal Leadership Program in the last two years, you are eligible to apply for a scholarship. Past scholarship winners can re-apply until the end of tertiary education.

The next round of scholarships is now open, please submit your application by 3rd April 2019. To submit your application, please download and complete the application form by clicking the link below and submit to
