The Niclas Kesler Scholarship was set up in 2012 in loving memory of Niclas Kesler, a young boy close to the Founders and staff of Little Heroes. The Scholarship was originally set up with money generously provided by the St George Foundation.

The purpose of the Scholarship is to offer aquatic education, and drowning prevention, programs to families with children with additional needs. Little Heroes understands the high cost of care involved in raising a child with additional needs and this Scholarship aims to make available vital services to children who might not otherwise have access to a learn to swim environment.

We have a tiered Scholarship framework with each application to be reviewed by our Scholarship Committee. If you would like to apply, put forward a family that you know of or request more information, please contact us at
