The Far North Queensland Youth Assistance Fund can provide grants for nominated young people under the age of 24 years and funds up to a maximum of $5,000 per individual to support, promote and encourage their Artistic, Educational or Sporting Potential. Students can re-apply each year until the end of the year they reach the age of 24 years.
Parents must reside in the FNQYAF region (Cardwell north to Thursday Island and west to Normanton). The Fund will endeavour to assist all eligible applicants. Application information and details are distributed to all the Schools throughout the Funds zoned area.
There is no defined list for applications. The needs of each application are considered on a case by case basis, and are linked to educational participation and assistance, which may be given by way of financial support.
