After the success of 2021’s Bursary program in Queensland it’s back for 2022 with the new name of the NDSP Goal Getter Grant and will be extending it to all of Australia with, a National Grant of $5000 and six State Grants of $2000 that can be put towards equipment, business advice, course fees or other study requirements. Additionally we will also be awarding $250 gift vouchers to 7 runners-up.
Applications for the 2022 Grant are now open and close on Friday the 23rd of September at 5pm (ACST).
Last year we had three successful applicants who were chosen from a pool of 27 applications.
John will be using the bursary to help kick-start his own wood and metal production business.
Chantel is using the bursary to take up further studies in swimming and training.
Willow with the assistance of the bursary program will be starting her own arts and crafts micro-enterprise.
Special mention goes to the other three finalists, Daichi, Renee and Kathy-Ann.
The judges were impressed with the ambition and creativity of all entries saying,
“It’s not dis-ability it’s different abilities” She saluted this innovative program which provides solutions.”
“To all the finalists: you should be proud of yourselves, keep going and be proud of who you are.”
Congratulations to all our 2021 Bursary awardees and we look forward to seeing the fruits of your love and hardwork in the coming months.
