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 at the time of entry, reference 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, and the allocation usually takes place by the end of May.
For more information or to submit an application email Sydney Eisteddfod.
