The Chance of a Lifetime
Western Chances believes in the power of education to transform lives. With your support, we give young people in Melbourne's west the chance to fulfil their potential and overcome barriers to success.
Our scholarships support talented and motivated students who may not otherwise have an opportunity to pursue their education dreams.
“I applied for my first Western Chances scholarship about seven years ago, because my mum and I were struggling financially. It was a small amount but it made an amazing difference because it meant I could continue dance classes,” Jemima, 18.
Since 2004 we have:
• Invested $4.6 million in young people
• Assisted over 2,500 young people
• Awarded over 5,200 scholarships
Western Chances Scholarship Recipients also have outstanding year 12 completion rates. See the latest statistics here.
From as little as $10 a month you can become a Big Dreams donor and help us to help even more young people like Jemima.
