Scholarship Program

Foundation Housing is committed to building the capacity of its tenants and residents by providing opportunities to access further education and development.

We want our residents and tenants to achieve their goals and reach their full potential. Our Scholarship Program is available to tenants and residents who are considering or currently undertaking study. Funding of up to $2,000 per scholarship will be offered to contribute to fees or expenses for a course chosen to undertake in the interest of furthering education and improving employment opportunities.

What Scholarship can I apply for?

The two scholarships offered are:

  • Educational and Development Scholarship – available to eligible tenants and residents.
  • The Kaartdijin Scholarship – specifically available to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander tenants and residents. Kaartdijin means ‘knowledge’ in Noongar language.

What can the Scholarship be used for?

You can use the funding to pay for lots of different things such as:

  • Course fees for TAFE or university
  • Text books, workbooks, study guides and computer equipment
  • Uniforms, sports kit/ equipment and special equipment
  • Tutoring and specialist skills development e.g., writing courses or football academies
