Harding Miller Education Foundation Award 2024 recipients (VIC)

220 high-school girls from right across Australia have received life-changing scholarships as part of the Harding Miller Education Foundation’s Awards for 2024.

 

Harding Miller Scholarships are provided to female students who show high academic potential and who are currently experiencing low socioeconomic circumstances.

 

Award ceremonies have now been held in capital cities across Australia, with a record 220 girls presented with scholarship support this year.

 

The scholarships are awarded to students at the start of Year 9, and, at the end of Year 10, the recipients are invited to reapply for another two years of support. The four years of scholarship support is valued at over $20,000.

 

Each scholarship recipient receives a new laptop, high-speed internet, face-to-face and online tutoring, online homework assistance, prepaid expense cards to cover school essentials such as textbooks and excursions, as well as study skills resources and a personal coach to guide them over the four years of the scholarship.

 

Harding Miller Education Foundation Chief Operations Officer Caroline Hill says the Foundation is proud to be providing vital support to help promising girls reach their full potential.

 

“We are so pleased to have completed awarding all the girls from around Australia as some of the scholarship recipients for 2024. The Foundation’s vital support for high-potential girls experiencing socioeconomic disadvantage has become even more critical as our country faces increased pressures with higher costs of living.

 

“Our scholarship recipients are bright, talented and engaged but don’t currently have the resources they need to make the most of their educational opportunities. The scholarship provides them with tangible items and practical things that give these young women a hand to complete their high-school education and take advantage of tertiary opportunities,” adds Caroline.

 

“Our scholarships offer more than just a financial boost. Our scholars are also paired with a volunteer coach who provides them with mentorship throughout the year. This support can often be the difference between continuing education or dropping out for an uncertain future.

 

“We encourage any other local girls who may need support to consider applying for a Harding Miller Education Foundation scholarship this year.”

 

Applications for scholarships for 2025 will open from 15 July to 18 September 2024.
