Sydney Eisteddfod has established a Travel Assistance Fund to help subsidise travel for young people from marginal and regional New South Wales and interstate to give them the opportunity to perform in the annual Sydney Eisteddfod Festival.
The Fund was originally established in 2009 by generous donations from The John Lamble Foundation and McDonald's Australia.
Requests for travel assistance should be made by email, referencing such things as:
* the Event Number and Entrant details used on the Entry Form
* reasons for requesting funding, e.g. financial constraints, cost of travel to Eisteddfod events
* a short background on the activities of the entrant, e.g. exam grades, etc
* a letter from the entrant's teacher/Principal supporting the application
The level of subsidy is at the discretion of Sydney Eisteddfod, the administrator of the Fund. The allocation usually takes place by the end of May and a letter with the applicable subsidy will be posted to successful applicants.
Please submit an application email to Sydney Eisteddfod and make sure that all requested documents (particularly supporting letter - see above) are submitted with your application.
