Premier's Anika Foundation Youth Depression Awareness Scholarship

This scholarship is open to teachers, Head Teachers - Student Welfare, School counsellors and health, physical education and personal development teachers currently teaching students at risk of youth depression within NSW schools and TAFE NSW campuses.

Applicants should focus on preventing depression in young people or building awareness of youth depression. Applicants should incorporate a Black Dog Institute course into their proposal as well as strategies for dealing with, or referring on young people who may be suffering from depression.

The successful applicant will undertake a study tour and follow-up activities of up to five weeks within Australia, with optional virtual international connections undertaken as appropriate. Study tour travel is to be completed in one block by 30 June 2023, with individual follow-up activities and reporting to be completed within 90 days of study tour completion.

Time may involve formal study (eg, undertaking a short course at a respected tertiary institution) or may involve a program of visits to sites, schools and institutions to conduct interviews, observe exemplary practices and collect resources for the preparation of teaching materials related to the specific scholarship category.

A portion of time (up to one week) should be allocated toward follow-up dissemination activities (eg, experience-sharing, professional learning) within and across NSW, either in-person or virtually. Study tour follow-up activities and outcomes should ideally include specific reference to enhancing rural and regional education.

One scholarship of $15,000 will be offered for travel during 2023.
