Every year dozens of exceptional students apply for this unique scholarship. They are girls who have overcome financial constraints and often a challenging home life to become excellent academic performers, with a genuine commitment to living life to its fullest. In the ten years since it was established, 21 young women have overcome a difficult start in life to become accomplished professionals in a range of careers, as a result of their university achievements.
The Foundation is currently able to provide two scholarships a year, and is reliant on donations to enable it to help more of the fantastic young women who apply. It is run by a passionate group of trustees and supporters who are working to build recognition that there are still many, many girls in our community who need help to make a start on a fulfilling life. Their objective is to provide ten scholarships in 2015, the Foundation’s tenth year.
