Got some questions?

The YBPS are for our young mob who wanna get further in sport, the arts or achieving academically (either at school, TAFE or uni). With support from the Queensland Family & Child Commission this round we have $2000 and $1000 scholarships to give away. How deadly is that! Applications are now closed!
You can receive either $2,000 or $1,000 to help you with your artistic or sporting dreams or support your education and training.
To be eligible for the scholarship you need to:
  • be of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander descent
  • be 25 years old or younger
  • be living in Queensland.
  • Applications for this round are now closed.
    There are three categories that you can apply for: education and training (primary, secondary and tertiary), the arts and sports.
  • Sport: The sports scholarship category provides funds for up and coming young Indigenous athletes to help them successfully participate in the sports of their choice. Young people sometimes find it difficult to meet the ongoing and significant costs associated with participation at sporting competitions. Funding can be used towards the cost of travel and/or accommodation to attend a sporting championship (state, national or international), camps and sports clinics, registration fees, uniforms or equipment.
  • Education & training: This category supports young Indigenous students or trainees who want to pursue their education and training goals by providing scholarships that enable students in financial need to attend school, training and/or university. You can receive funds towards educational or training goals. Funds can be used to pay for such things as course fees, equipment, uniforms, text books and stationery.
  • Arts: This category is for innovative young Indigenous artists to undertake professional development programs and activities in their chosen field. The scholarship is open to young artists and performers from all art forms, including dance, design, digital arts (including photography), Aboriginal arts, literature, music, theatre, screen and the visual arts. Funding can be used towards any items that support your ability to further your artistic goals, for example: • equipment and materials • marketing and planning, e.g., towards an exhibition • travel and accommodation to a conference or exhibition fees.
  • No. In previous rounds, we asked for applicants to have had an annual health check (715) in the last 12 months. In recognition of this round being statewide, health checks are encouraged and will be viewed favourably but are not a requirement. If you live in Brisbane and would like to have an annual health check, our clinics are located at Browns Plains, Logan, Loganlea, Northgate and Woolloongabba. Contact us to make an appointment today. There are also Aboriginal Medical Services in Toowoomba, Townsville etc.
    If you have already received funding from another scholarship or were successful in a previous round of our scholarship, you may not be eligible for this round. Preference will be given to young people who have not received previous help or funding.
    Yes please! We can send you some printed flyers that you can give out to others in your community. Or you can share the love on social media. Got a question or need something else? Just contact us on

    From 13 April 2018 the name of the Young, Black & Deadly Scholarship program changed to Young, Black and Proud. This is due to Young, Black & Deadly being trademarked by the Gadigal Information Service in NSW. ATSICHS Brisbane meant no disrespect to the Gadigal Information Service and apologies for any confusion.
