Variety Heart Scholarships

Variety provides scholarships to children with an existing talent living with disabilities, chronic illness or financial hardship to achieve their full potential and to follow their dreams.

2021 Applications are open now!

Scholarships are awarded up to the value of $5,000 in areas of Sports or The Arts.

Variety Heart Scholarships support kids with a demonstrated talent who are living with a disability, chronic illness or financial hardship, to pursue their dreams and realise their potential.

Scholarships of up to $5,000 are awarded in the areas of Sport or The Arts and can be used for things like uniforms and equipment, coaching and lessons 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 Heart Scholarships are made possible by the support of our partners, The Grahame Mapp Family Foundation in honour of the late Gillian Mapp. Thanks to their generosity, this year we have even more scholarships to award.

Who can apply?
– Demonstrate an existing talent in one of these areas; Sports or The Arts
– Aged 6 to 18 years
– Residents of NSW or ACT
