Glass Jar Australia receives funding to deliver the Shooting Stars program across Western and South Australia. With every new site, additional funding is required.
If you’re a school staff member/principal and are interested in exploring having the Shooting Stars program at your school, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your specific location and school, number of potential participants, year groups and whether you already have funding to run this program or not.
Unfortunately Shooting Stars is not in a position to assist individuals with funding/scholarships due to funding constraints.
The below organisations may be able to assist with individual funding:
Sport Australia is the Australian Government body responsible for the delivery of funding and development of Australian sport. https://www.sportaus.gov.au/grants_and_funding
The Aurora Foundation has a database of scholarships available for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students across Australia: https://aurorafoundation.com.au/our-work/indigenous-pathways-portal/
The Madalah Foundation provides scholarships for Indigenous students to attend Western Australia’s leading boarding schools and Australian universities: https://madalah.com.au/
We love keeping in touch with our Shooting Stars alumnae and support them wherever we can, however the Shooting Stars program currently only works with young girls and women within a school environment in years 3 to 12. Our pathways program provides our girls with the tools needed post their year 12 schooling, however at this point in time we do not have any plans to work with women outside the scope of our current in-school programs.
The Shooting Stars program is focused on providing support to Aboriginal girls and women. There are alternate programs in place for Aboriginal boys/men.
