The GO Foundation chooses students based on several criteria. The selection criteria for the 2022 Public High School Scholarships are as follows:
- school attendance
- cultural identity
- giving back
- demonstrated need for financial assistance.
Scholarships include access to GO Foundation cultural mentoring and aspiration days, access to opportunities including internships and work experience. GO Scholarships also include financial assistance for educational tools and resources.
The closing date for applications to be submitted (including supporting references) is 5pm 21 March 2022. No applications will be accepted after this time.
