Families of Year 9 Students in 2021

By JR McKenzie Youth Education Fund | Posted: Friday October 16, 2020

The JR McKenzie Youth Education Fund has a proud tradition of supporting families in need of financial assistance, with the purchasing of a school uniform.

As such, we are pleased to invite grant applications from suitable candidates. The closing date for applications is Friday 11 December 2020. Late applications will be considered on a case by case basis.

Please find attached a copy of the 2020/21 application form.

Our criteria have changed this year. We will now consider applications from those students entering High School, College and Intermediate for the first time.

Applications will only be considered for families requiring financial assistance, and in this regard, it must be signed by an independent sponsor before an application is returned to us. The sponsor should be an organisation that is familiar with the applicant’s circumstances (i.e. school, social service agency etc).

Applications outside the above criteria will not be considered.

Grants must be for the purchase of basic school clothing and footwear only (excluding roadshoes/runners/stationery/school bags). The JR McKenzie Youth Education Trust will not accept responsibility for any other merchandise purchased.

Purchase orders will be posted to successful applicants late December 2020. Parents / Guardians of any unsuccessful applications will also be advised in writing.

Please ensure applications are properly completed, including the signing of the application by a sponsor, and forwarded to the address below prior to the closing date, Friday 11 December 2020.
