Students eligible for Centrelink’s Start-up Loan are encouraged to opt in and may still be eligible for a Chances Scholarship.

If you do get awarded a scholarship from another source, there is still a possibility that Chances will assist you by topping up your scholarship if you are still in financial need.


The Elite Indigenous Travel and Accommodation Assistance Program (EITAAP) is an initiative that is jointly managed by the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) and Australian Government Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (PM&C).
Funding is available for athletes, coaches, managers or officials to assist with out-of-pocket travel and accommodation expenses when attending eligible national championships or international competitions.

Opening the Doors Foundation The Foundation was formed to help cover the gaps in existing funding, not to duplicate or take the place of existing services. As a result applications requesting support for school uniforms, book lists, levies, VET & VCAL subjects and extra-curricular activities will take priority.
The Applicant (student) must be of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent and supply a Confirmation of Aboriginality.
