The Brave Foundation’s Pathway Scholarships have been created to minimise the financial barriers experienced by expecting and parenting teens (E&PT’s) as they continue through their secondary school education, and engage in workforce participation preparation.
The Brave Pathway Scholarships reflect an understanding that many expecting and parenting teens experience unique challenges at this stage of their education, life and eventual workforce readiness and participation.
