Young people living on the Coast with a physical disability are being encouraged to apply for a CoastAbility scholarship.
CoastAbility is one of the oldest disability charities on the Central Coast and provides financial assistance towards the cost of disability related needs not covered by National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) funding for young people aged under 25.
The organisation’s scholarships are open to all young people that match the criteria and come in two forms: academic and sporting.
Both types of scholarship are valued at $5,000 and are designed to ease some of the financial burdens on young people as they pursue their education and sporting ambitions whilst managing their disability.
Scholarships may be used to cover expenses for items such as equipment, transport, accommodation, training and general education needs.
