Online scholarships guide launched
NOT-FOR-PROFIT organisation the Country Education Foundation has launched a new online scholarship guide to help young rural and regional Australians access scholarships, grants and bursaries.
This purpose-built online search platform is the first of its kind for country kids and their families and will allow people to search hundreds of scholarships in just a few quick clicks.
That’s why CEF have brought together scholarships from a broad range of facilities on one easy-to-use website.
The CEF 2017 Scholarship Guide is a one-stop-shop for higher education scholarship opportunities.
CEF CEO Sarah Taylor said school leavers from rural and regional Australia have just as much potential as kids who grow up in the city but are being locked out of further education because of financial pressures and a lack of access to opportunities.
“When I talk to students and families from rural Australia one reason kids are not going on to further education is because they simply can’t afford to move away from home,” she said.
Macquarie University recognises the special challenges students from regional areas face in accessing higher education, and costs involved in relocation.
Support of the Scholarships Guide is one way we can foster educational and career achievements of youth in rural Australia.
Textbooks, equipment is just too high in a lot of cases. Visit their website for more information www.cef.org.au.
