Turning ambition into reality

Mary Jane Lewis Scholarship Foundation

Turning Ambition Into Reality​

The Mary Jane Lewis Scholarship Foundation was established in 2004 in recognition that talented young women should be supported to achieve their higher education goals. The Foundation provides scholarships each year for three years, for eligible young women to take on an undergraduate degree.

Our scholarships provide women with the support they need to receive tertiary education that they would otherwise miss out on due to family, financial or other circumstances.

Why Mary Jane Lewis Scholarships exist

Many bright young people look forward to university education. For some, it is a straightforward journey but, for others, family circumstances and financial hardship make it much more difficult.

The MJL Scholarship Foundation exists to give these talented, hardworking women a chance to pursue their educational dreams.
