Time is running out to apply for a Variety Scholarship.
The scholarship helps children who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs reach their potential in the fields of art, music, sport or education.
It helps kids under 19 explore their passion or talent with up to $5000 per child available annually to cover training costs, equipment, skills-based courses and more.
More than 130 children have been assisted by the scholarships program since it began in 2014. Recipient Maddison Elliott OAM recently won three gold and two silver medals at the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games.
Applications are open until October 31 and will be announced in early 2017 at a Scholarship Presentation Evening.
