Choosi Futures Grant Program 2019-2020


Overview

Choosi is an insurance comparison service and we’re dedicated to helping Australians make better, more informed decisions when purchasing an insurance policy. We do this by offering a free insurance comparison that enables customers to compare the benefits of a range of different policies across various insurance brands, so that they can choose a policy that suits their needs, lifestyle, and budget. Choosi is passionate about helping to make a healthier Australia and as part of this commitment, we developed the annual Choosi Futures Grant Program – a financial assistance of $5,000 that’s offered to one lucky student enrolled in a full-time, accredited Australian education institution studying a certificate, diploma, degree, or traineeship in any of the following areas: Medicine, Health Sciences & Healthcare, and/or Specialist Healthcare.
