The Disability Leadership Scholarship Program is an initiative from the Department of Justice and Regulation’s Disability Action Plan. The program aims to achieve a long-term increase in the number of qualified people with a disability employed across all areas and all levels of the public service. The 2016 program will be offering a limited number of scholarships for people with a disability in Victoria in the following areas of study:
- social work
- other justice-related fields.
A scholarship for study at diploma, advanced diploma, bachelor, and postgraduate level will be offered at a tertiary institution within Victoria.
The scholarship will be awarded on a merit principle, taking into account an applicant’s eligibility, past academic results, ability to complete a course of study, and competitiveness against other scholarship applicants.
The scholarship program will provide eligible students with a fortnightly study allowance to study full-time or part-time to complete up to a maximum of 2 years of an undergraduate or postgraduate course.
