We thought it might be useful to answer some questions you have been asking us about the CREATE Your Future Grant Scheme, so here are some answers to the most commonly asked questions.
WHO CAN APPLY?
If you are between the ages of 15 – 25 with a statutory care experience, and you are a clubCREATE member, you can apply for this grant. If you do not yet have a membership number, please put the date which you joined clubCREATE on the application form.
CREATE does not require proof of your statutory care experience, however you are required to be a clubCREATE member.
WHAT IF I HAVE RECEIVED A CREATE YOUR FUTURE GRANT BEFORE IN PREVIOUS YEARS?
You are eligible to apply again, especially if your grant is for continuing educational needs.
HOW DO I COMPLETE A CREATE YOUR FUTURE GRANT APPLICATION?
Easy! Simply download a copy of the CREATE Your Future Grant Scheme Application Form and Checklist, or complete your application form online by clicking the purple links above, by the due date. We encourage you to complete the application by yourself, however if you do need a hand you can get always get someone to help you just make sure you include this on the application form.
GET A WRITTEN QUOTE… WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
At CREATE we require quotes so we can see what you would like to request funding for. For instance, if you would like to do a course you will need to;
- Find the organisation that offers the course;
- Go and get a quote for the cost of the course; and
- Attach this quote to your Application Form.
WHAT MAKES A CREATE YOUR FUTURE GRANT SCHEME APPLICATION GREAT?
The best applications we receive are the ones that are completed in full. If an application is lodged that does not have all the information we need, it will be deemed ineligible (which means that we can’t assess your application).
CAN SOMEONE HELP ME COMPLETE MY APPLICATION?
We encourage all young people to complete the CREATE Your Future Application Form on their own, however you can receive assistance to do so. If you do receive assistance please let us know. If there is no one who can help, please email CYFgrants@create.org.au
WHAT IF I AM NOT SUCCESSFUL?
You will be sent a letter within 3 weeks of the closing date advising you if you have not been successful. CREATE receives heaps of applications and unfortunately we don’t have the funds to support each and every applicant. We do realise that it is disappointing if you miss out and we appreciate your understanding with us and our staff if you are not successful.
COOL, SO WHERE DO I SEND MY APPLICATION?
At the end of the application form you will find details of where to email, post or fax your application to.
