Daniel & Joshua Szwarc Memorial Scholarship

The application period for the Daniel and Joshua Szwarc Memorial Scholarship has been extended. Applications now close on Friday 14 December 2018.

In 2019, Access Inc. will award the inaugural Daniel & Joshua Szwarc Memorial Scholarship to one high school student living with a disability in the Jewish community.

Established by the Szwarc family to honour the memory of Daniel and Joshua Szwarc - two children who due to Canavan’s Disease, were never able to walk, speak or feed themselves but whose smiles and cheeky personalities inspired all those who were touched by them.

The scholarship will cover the cost of one Access program of the applicant’s choice (subject to availability), for the duration of a term. This will allow the chosen candidate to experience options available to them post-school. Applicants will need to get permission from their school to attend an Access program for the duration of the course.

The successful applicant will demonstrate resilience and a positive attitude and express interest in pursuing vocational and life skills programs offered by Access Inc. The applicant must be at least 16 years of age as of 01 February 2019.

Access runs a suite of programs aimed at providing participants with the opportunity to gain pre-accredited vocational training, increase community engagement and social connectedness and pursue their passions.
