The Skillshare Education Grant being offered is funded by Foundation Broken Hill in conjunction with an endowment from Broken Hill Skillshare.  The Grants have been set up to enhance career opportunities for school leavers, those who are unemployed or retrenched, or who are working in a casual or part-time positions.

Each grant provided will be on an individual basis to meet the requirements of the applicant. An annual grant (up to $5,000) will be offered prior to the commencement of the educational year.

The grant applicants will be assessed by a sub-committee panel and the decision of that selection panel will be final.
