Our Grants Program

Each year we provide grants that support our clients to undertake education, training or other professional development pursuits.

The following grants, funded through the generous support of philanthropic trusts, individual donors and bequests, provide an additional opportunity for Foundation House to assist clients to rebuild their lives in Australia:

Quentin Buckle Study Grant (QBSG)

First awarded in 2007 to honour the legacy of founding member, Quentin Buckle and his lifelong commitment to human rights advocacy, community and social justice, this Grant is designed to support recipients from a refugee background to undertake or continue education or training in their chosen field.

  • Grants of up to $5,000 are awarded each year at the Foundation House end of year celebration
  • Up to eight grants may be awarded in any one year
  • Nominations are considered by a panel comprising Foundation House Board members and senior staff

Ian McKenzie Endeavour Grant (IMEG)

The Ian McKenzie Endeavour Grant honours the late Ian McKenzie OAM, a member of the Foundation House Board of Management from 2006 to 2014. It is designed to support a client of Foundation House in their chosen field of endeavour and preference may be given to clients who are artistically inclined. The Grant may be used for study, business or other advancement purposes but must go towards the substantial area of endeavour.

  • One grant of up to $5,000 will be awarded each year at the Foundation House end of year celebration
  • Nominations are considered by a panel comprising Foundation House Board members and senior staff
