The scholarships program will support 150 people with $15,000 each to complete their training and further their career.
The scholarships support apprentices who are experiencing financial or personal hardship, demonstrate a high aptitude for vocational education and training, and are committed to their on- and off-the-job training in metropolitan and regional NSW.
“With demand for vocational education high, this year the Minns Government has increased the number of Bert Evans scholarships on offer,” Ms Saffin said.
“Whether you need to purchase new tools, cover fuel or car maintenance costs, or pay for additional training courses, these scholarships have helped people overcome personal barriers to finish their apprenticeships and go onto rewarding careers.”
The scholarship program is named in honour of the late Bert Evans AO, a passionate advocate of vocational education for more than 30 years. A total of 751 Bert Evans Apprentice Scholarships have been awarded since 2014.
The NSW Government-run program offers grants of $5000 annually over three years to help people overcome personal barriers to finish their apprenticeships and go onto rewarding careers.
The scholarships are awarded to apprentices in NSW who have demonstrated:
- financial hardship and/or personal hardship
- capability for vocational education and training, and
- a positive attitude and application in the workplace and in off-the-job training.
