Community

We want our residents to achieve their goals and reach their full potential. Our Scholarship Program can help residents with the cost of education, professional development and lifelong learning.

In recent years, residents have achieved or are working towards some amazing things. Renata who is an incredible artist chasing her dream in art school; Chloe is studying a PhD and is very passionate about Australian literature; Graham has created two acoustic guitars from scratch; and Mark wants to make a positive impact in community housing.

Who can apply?

You can apply for a scholarship if you:

• Live in a Link Wentworth Social housing, Affordable Housing, Transitional Housing
or Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) property.

• Receive a rent subsidy from Link Wentworth supporting you to rent in the private rental market. This includes individuals receiving Rent Choice, Start Safely or the
Private Rental Subsidy.

How does it work?

In 2024 we have increased the funds available to $200,000 and have revised our funding criteria so that we can assist as many residents as possible to reach their educational and professional goals.

There are four scholarship categories you can apply for:

You may only apply for one category per person, per round. The maximum amount 

you can apply for depends on your eligibility and which category you choose to apply for. 

> Applications open in July 2024
