To support Australians who may have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, leading education provider Kaplan Professional have made available 500 fully-funded scholarships.

Kaplan Professional CEO Brian Knight said it was the education provider’s way of helping an Australian community in need. “The crisis has deeply affected Australians from all walks of life; we have been inspired by organisations around the country who have offered their support to those who may be struggling, so we wanted to do what we could too. “Education can often enable people to broaden their horizons, while providing a meaningful endeavour to focus their energy during a challenging time. “We hope this can help provide people with an opportunity to learn new skills and knowledge to re-emerge in the workforce as quickly as possible,” he said. Kaplan Professional warmly welcomes other education institutions to join this initiative and offer what they can to support Australians. Scholarship applications are open until 30 June 2020.
