Allianz and asylum support group Settlement Services International will fund more scholarships for refugees this year.

The insurer has allocated $50,000 out of $84,000 required to sponsor 35 people under the program in NSW.

Recipients are across secondary school, vocational training and university, plus people seeking recognition for prior qualifications.

The program has run for three years, and 21 refugees have been hired by Allianz in a variety of skilled, permanent roles.

Another 20 have been supported through pre-employment workshops.
