10 ISSUE 24 | March 2010 SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITIES CONTINUED.... WHO WILL THE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM HELP? While the majority of young people in Australia successfully negotiate study and careers, some young people confront barriers that prevent them from achieving their best. Father Riley and Youth Off The Streets aim to break down some of these barriers, by offering assistance to young people who have determination, aptitude and skill in a chosen fi eld or pathway and give them the assistance and support that they need to achieve success. The Youth Off The Streets Scholarship Program celebrates the gifts and strengths of young people from the Australian community who exhibit extraordinary promise but who lack the personal support networks and resources that will allow them to fulfi ll that potential. It targets young people aged between 14 and 21 years of age who are disadvantaged and/or may be disconnected YOUTH OFF THE STREETS SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM The aim of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Scholarship Scheme is to encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to undertake studies in Pharmacy at University. It is acknowledged that if the needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities are to be adequately met by pharmacists, there is a need for more Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander pharmacists working in the industry. A total of three (3) scholarships valued at $15,000 per annum for a maximum of four years are offered annually. For information on other programs offered under the Rural Workforce Programs please log onto http://www.guild.org.au/rural/content.asp?id=204 from their families or communities and who are permanent residents of this country. Over twenty young people from throughout Australia are awarded scholarships each year to the value of $5,000 each to pursue further education or training so they may realise their potential for a positive future. Nominations for the Youth Off The Streets Scholarship Program are not restricted to a specifi c study or training path. Nominations are invited from young people with genuine talent, ability and determination in any fi eld, including (but not limited to): education and training; visual or performing arts; sport; trade skills; and music. The wide ranging goals pursued by the scholarship recipients will encourage other disadvantaged young people to follow their dreams.
