SA Variety Heart Scholarship (Individual Application) 2020

This is a preview of the 2020 (Individual) Scholarship Application form. When you’re ready to apply, click Fill Out Now to begin.



The Variety Heart Scholarship Program supports children with an existing talent, who are disadvantaged or living with a disability, to achieve their full potential and to follow their dreams.

Applications can only be accepted for children up to the age of 18 and who are SA residents. Scholarships are awarded to support children in the areas of the arts and sport. Scholarships are awarded on a yearly basis and must be spent within 12 months. Scholarships will be limited to $3,000 per year, per application.  Depending on the level of progress, scholarships may be renewed with a new application and supporting documentation submitted each year.

Some examples of scholarship applications are:

The Arts: Singing or dance lessons, art tuition, art materials and supplies, exhibition or competition entry fees, costumes.

Sport: equipment, clothing, shoes, entry, membership or registration fees, coaching fees, travel to competitions or training.


The acceptance period for Scholarship applications is advertised and applications are accepted year round, closing on 30 November. Each Scholarship application is considered by a committee of volunteers, who are experienced professionals. Successful recipients are notified in December, with the Scholarships due to start in the new year.

This detailed application process helps to ensure the Scholarship grants are distributed appropriately.

Variety - the Children's Charity South Australia would like to share in the celebrations, as our scholarship recipients achieve milestones and receive recognition.  Our expectation is that families will contact us to advise of these significant achievements.  Please contact us on 8293 8744 or
