Application Writing

Foundation Broken Hill’s 2024 Training Grant is now open for applications, so if you’re a school leaver, undertaking current studies, or an apprenticeship, a traineeship, or just thinking about a career change, Foundation Broken Hill are inviting you to apply before applications close on Friday March 1.

The Foundation Broken Hill Training Grant is being offered to help towards career opportunities for school leavers, those undertaking current studies, those in a casual or part-time position, job seekers, or those who are thinking about a career change, and also to assist those who can demonstrate financial or other hardships.

The main objective of the grant program is to encourage a person to pursue a course of study in a field which will benefit their future job opportunities in Broken Hill and the region.

The successful applicants will be those wishing to upgrade their skills or qualifications in the pursuit of paid employment, either in Broken Hill or when they return to Broken Hill after their studies are completed.

Five grants up to the value of $1000 are on offer and each grant is provided on an individual basis to successful applicants who meet the Foundation’s criteria. Applicants may be required to attend an interview as part of the selection process where they’ll be assessed by a sub-committee panel.

The training grant can be used for:

  • Course fees
  • Textbooks
  • Course specific equipment or tools
  • Travel expenses to the place of study (if outside Broken Hill)
  • Other study related expenses as agreed by the Grant sub-committee

What you’ll need to attach with an application:

  • A copy of the course details you wish to study
  • Details of any financial assistance you are receiving relating to your study
  • Any documents relating to costs you have incurred or are about to incur (i.e. course fee invoice, quote for relevant equipment, receipts for textbooks or travel/accommodation expenses)
