Applications for this year’s Variety Heart Scholarships are open from 1 June.
These scholarships are designed to support children with a demonstrated talent who are living with a disability, chronic illness, geographic isolation or financial hardship, to reach the next stage of development in their talent.
Scholarships are available in Sport, The Arts and Education.
Scholarships of up to $5,000 are awarded and can be used to help with things like uniforms and equipment, coaching and lessons, travel and other expenses.
Some past recipients have gone on to represent Australia on the world stage, whilst others have simply needed help to reach the next stage of development in their talent.
Variety – the Children’s Charity is a key partner of Sport NSW, and we are pleased to support this important initiative by sharing with our members and subscribers.

The Dancesport NSW Board would like to announce that Carol Kimmins, Chairperson and Executive Officer, has resigned both positions and stepped down as a Director of the NSW Board. Carol will however still be actively involved in our industry maintaining the roles of Accreditation Officer for NSW and her positions on the Rules and Accreditation Commissions for Dancesport Australia. Until the next AGM in October 2018, Gordon Gilkes has been elected into the position of Chairperson, and Cushla Gillard into the position of Executive Officer.
The Board would like to recognize and thank Carol for her incredible contribution to Dancesport both in NSW and on the national stage. Carol was a founding member of the Board of NSW and has served 19 years with integrity, passion and the utmost belief in our industry. For this we are all grateful.
The new Board appreciates and thanks Carol for her exemplary support during this transition and looks forward to working with her in the future.
On behalf of the DanceSport NSW Board – Steve Edwards, Director
