We want our residents to achieve their goals and reach their full potential. Our Scholarship Program can help residents with the cost of education, sports activities or special interests like music.
The program is open to residents of any age who live in a Link Wentworth managed home and are a permanent Australian resident. Applications open around the middle of each year.
Our Scholarship Program has closed for 2022 and will open again mid-2023.
Residents will be informed by our website, resident newsletter, Facebook page, and other communications.
