GROW A STAR SCHOLARSHIPS NOW AVAILABLE
FIRST FUNDING ROUND FOR 2022 HAS BEEN EXTENDED UNTIL 16 MAY
Do you know a young person who needs support with their education, sporting or artistic pursuits?
Our first youth scholarship funding round for 2022 is open with a total of $20,000 available!
At Grow A Star, we provide mentoring and financial assistance, up to the value of $1,500, to help young people overcome the social and financial barriers that are preventing them from following their dreams.
Grow a Star is an innovative, youth mentoring and scholarship program that helps young people from disadvantaged backgrounds overcome the financial or generational obstacles that are preventing them from following their academic, sporting or artistic dreams.
The program was created by Home in Place and is the first of its kind to be designed and operated by a community housing provider.
By enabling young people to pursue their passions, the program aims to build the self-confidence in young people to achieve their highest ambitions and foster habits and behaviours that can set them up for life.
Since its launch in 2012, Grow a Star has assisted hundreds of young people from the Hunter, Central Coast, Mid North Coast and remote Central West regions to pursue their academic, artistic or sporting goals at grassroots and representative levels.
Grow a Star expanded its geographic reach to Queensland in 2016 and the first New Zealand recipient was a awarded a scholarship in 2018.
