2019 Applications are now open

Scholarships are awarded up to the value of $5,000 in areas of Education, Sports and 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, The Arts and Education, 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; The Arts, Sport or Education
– Aged 6 to 18 years
– Residents of NSW or ACT
