What is a Eurekamp Oz! Scholarship?
PEiPL Ltd has established a Eurekamp Oz! Scholarship Program, administered jointly with our partner, the University of Western Australia. A Eurekamp Oz! Scholarship covers costs, in part or in whole, of registration for one child.
In 2022, funding for 10 x 2-day ($170) EO! Scholarships has been provided by the City of Subiaco through a Community Development Grant to PEiPL Ltd. These are for school-age children who attend schools that the City serves, including those (e.g., Shenton College) that lie beyond its boundaries. Applications are welcome from any child or family that satisfies one or more of the criteria we specify further below.
Why are Scholarships important?
We believe that Eurekamp Oz! should be open to all children, regardless of the ability of their families to pay for camp registration in part or in full and strive to remove the barriers that children may face to participation. We recognise the value of equity and of diversity in camp composition, and that effective access to a university-based program, especially one associated with philosophy, will be limited for some children.
Who is eligible for a Eurekamp Oz! scholarship?
A family may be eligible for a Eurekamp Oz! Scholarship because of economic need, unemployment and under-employment, hardship associated with disability and illness, and having educational opportunities that have been significantly limited. We recognise that COVID raises equity considerations here, including for single parents, students, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island Peoples. Scholarships consistent with the objectives of PEiPL’s Pay-It-Forward Policy will be awarded at the Board’s sole discretion and subject to funding availability.
