VicSRC Congress Scholarships 2014

Ensuring Congress represents a range of views from diverse young people from around Victoria.

What is VicSRC?

The Victorian Student Representative Council (VicSRC) is the peak body representing secondary students in Victoria. Our vision is to make student voices heard at all levels and strengthen the capacity of Student Representative Councils to make a difference in their school and across the state.

What is Congress?

Congress is a two day camp that brings together secondary students, student leaders and SRC students from across Victoria to discuss and debate issues that are important to their school communities. Students participate in student led workshops, activities, and formal decision-making through a parliamentary-style congress.

What are the scholarships?

Congress works best if lots of different students take part, because they bring a range of ideas and experiences with them.

So VicSRC, with the support of the Victorian Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, is pleased to offer 10 scholarships to attend Congress, to help more young people to attend. We especially want to encourage young people who are Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander, or from migrant or refugee backgrounds to attend.

Each scholarship is valued at $145.00 and covers all the costs of attending Congress: transport from/to Melbourne CBD, accommodation, food, conference resources and registration.

Criteria

To apply for a scholarship you must be a secondary school student in Victoria (Year 7 – 12), who is either

Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander, or

from a migrant or refugee background, or

unable to cover the costs of attending the Congress.
