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.
