2022 Choosi Futures Grant Winner - Tara Garson

We thank all applicants for their interest in this year’s Choosi Futures Grant Program! It was a very competitive year, with so many inspirational submissions. We have now started accepting applications for 2023 and welcome all students who meet the eligibility criteria to apply.


Choosi is an insurance comparison service and we’re dedicated to helping Australians make more informed decisions when purchasing life insurance, funeral insurance, pet insurance, car insurance, home and contents insurance, or business insurance. 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.
