Supporting children affected by domestic violence.

What is the Little Friends Scholarship?

Friends with Dignity and Jeunesse Kids have partnered to provide bi-annual monetary scholarships to children who have faced Domestic and Family Violence throughout Australia.

Our Little Friends Scholarship powered by Jeunesse Kids has been established to ensure all children have the ability to either further their education and/or be able to participate in extra-curricula activities that they may not be able to pursue due to the financial impact of Domestic and Family Violence within their family environment.

To apply for a scholarship please read the information below and complete the application.
