#ALW2018 scholarship

Nominate someone special

Three ALW2018 scholarships will be awarded to outstanding adult learners to enable them to continue learning by either taking a new learning pathway or continuing an existing one.

We’re inviting adult learning providers around Australia to celebrate the lifechanging power of adult learning by nominating adult learners whose commitment and motivation makes them stand out from the rest. We’re looking for learners for whom learning has made a big difference in their lives. They might be someone who has overcome a significant barrier in order to get started or who still faces challenges in continuing to learn.

Eligible learners are people who are involved in a range of learning from basic skills, literacy, numeracy, digital and employment skills to art, science, health and much more. Adult Learners’ Week celebrates learning of all kinds.

Through this fantastic initiative, we want to hear stories of the power of learning and how it brings life changing opportunities to people; with an emphasis on those who need a little more support than others.

What will be funded?

The learning programs that the ALW2018 scholarship can fund may be non-formal or formal programs but nominators do need to demonstrate how the program will support the nominee to continue to change the trajectory of their lives through learning.

Nominating someone for a scholarship involves telling us the learner’s story and the impact learning has had on their lives, and how an Adult Learners’ Week scholarship will support this person to change their lives through learning. Sharing these empowering stories will motivate others to engage in learning and to realise they can also change their lives or the lives of others for the better.

Application deadline: 31 August 2018
