Ida Curtois Acheiver Awards

Tuesday 24 November 2009

Young people in care deserve access to every opportunity in life…

The annual Ida Curtois Achiever Awards aim to provide financial assistance and encouragement to young people aged 16 to 25 years who have been in the Department’s care and are persevering with their further education.

If you know a young person who has been in the Department’s care and is currently enrolled in the first year of a degree, diploma, certificate, apprenticeship, traineeship or course at an approved institution, they may be eligible for an award.

Award recipients receive funding to assist with further study and/or training in two amounts – the first half is presented at the award presentation ceremony and the second half after the successful completion of the first semester or term of education. Proof of further enrolment is required by the Department in order to process the second payment
