Educational scholarships

The LyriK Educational Scholarships assist youth entering year 7, year 11, year 12, and further education, with their studies. Find out what’s available, the eligibility criteria, and how to apply.

LyriK Educational Scholarship Program

The educational scholarships are a part of the City’s LyriK – Leadership, Youth, Respect in Kwinana program and aim to recognise educational achievement and encourage further education, towards improved education standards in Kwinana.

Applicants are scored against a matrix across three key areas: academic, personal, and community.

The scholarship funds can be used to purchase educational items, including:

  • books;
  • stationery;
  • academic related technological equipment;
  • school uniforms; and
  • educational fees.

In addition to the scholarship funds, recipients are offered mentoring to support by staff who are experienced in youth development to help them achieve their goals.

Scholarship Categories

There are four scholarship categories and values, with each category typically having up to four recipients per year:

  • entering year 7 - $300;
  • entering year 11 - $375;
  • entering year 12 - $400; and
  • entering further education - $800.

Eligibility

To be eligible, an applicant must live in Kwinana, but can be studying either within Kwinana or outside the area.

Applicants must also be between the ages of 11 and 19, and fall within one of the four categories.
