Scholarships for School Leavers

1 Comment

With the massive cost increases of many courses you need to find all of the financial support available so that you don’t end uni with a massive debt.

I found these unusual ones:

Most scholarships can be found in the Good Universities Guide.

 

Apply in Year 12

Many scholarships need to be applied for during year 12.

The closing dates vary depending on the scholarship but many close in August or September.

Some scholarships require a personal statement and references which may take some time to compile.

I went to uni because my girlfriend was going to uni. I had no idea. I struggled through my degree. I struggled to avoid teaching. I struggled to find my way in the world beyond school. After washing cars and working in bars I went into marketing and then became an English teacher. It didn't stop there. I went into TAFE, then into HR, then into designing training programs for industry before going into system design and IT. At one stage I became a world expert on collaboration frameworks!! Now I am an expert in career paths from school in Western Australia. You can tap into my expertise by subscribing to my newsletter for West Australian high schools or by working with me online as we design your perfect next step.
