Apply for your chance to receive a NIDA Open Equity Scholarship!

To celebrate NIDA’s 60th anniversary, NIDA Open has committed up to $25,000 worth of complimentary tuition to help young people who are experiencing barriers to participation in the arts including, financial or other disadvantage to achieve their full creative potential.

The NIDA Open Equity Scholarships are available throughout the 2019 spring holiday program period and are open to all secondary school-aged students nationally, regardless of previous experience or professional ambition.

Applications can be made by individuals or by an organisation on behalf of a young person identified as a suitable scholarship applicant.

If you or a young person you know wants to experience a NIDA Open course and would like some support to achieve this goal, we want to hear from you!


Applicants nominating themselves are required to:
1. Write a personal statement about how you would benefit from this opportunity.
2. Submit one short letter of support from a community leader: teacher, elder, local artist, etc. The support letter should detail why you should receive a scholarship to support your participation, what you will gain from this experience – be that personal or professional development – and how the community will be supporting you to attend, if additional support is required.
3. Suggest which course in your local area you would most like to attend.


Please read carefully
Equity scholarships are conferred at the discretion of NIDA Open staff. We will endeavor to provide support to as many young people as possible however there are location limits and a combined total limit to the value of $25,000 in any calendar year. The decision of NIDA staff is final and no further correspondence shall be entered into.

The full cost of tuition for your nominated course is covered by this scholarship. Costs of travel, accommodation, food and any additional supports required remain at the participants' expense.

All applicants must be able to attend and fully contribute to the course for the entire scholarship period as awarded. The scholarship place cannot be transferred to another time period or person.

Successful applicants may be asked to complete a short interview about their experience for use on NIDA’s online channels, marketing materials or in other media communications. Participants may decline to be interviewed for personal, cultural or legal reasons.

Applications close strictly at 9am, Monday 29 July 2019. Letters of support must also be received by the closing date.

Applications will be assessed by the National Short Course Manager, Senior Program Manager, Business Manager and Director of Public Programs, and then confirmed by NIDA’s General Manager.

Successful applicants will be notified by phone and email on or after 23 August 2019. Unsuccessful applicants will be notified by email on or after 30 August 2019 to the email address submitted in your application.

Equity scholarships are available for any spring holiday course designed for young people in secondary school grades nationally. Applicants should nominate by preference which course they would like a scholarship for in their application.
