CADETSHIP

WHAT IS THE CADETSHIP PROGRAM?

Our Cadetship program supports talented young people facing challenging life circumstances to complete university and gain the skills needed for an employable future.

The Cadetship program is open to Year 12 students transitioning to university and is a three to five-year program, dependent on the length of the degree and the sponsorship model.
