We are proud to announce that in 2023, the Foundation has awarded its 1,000th scholarship since starting in 2016.

Of these new scholars, 42% come from a non-English speaking background, 36% are from regional or rural Australia, 25% have experienced domestic violence, 13% are first nations girls, 10% are from a refugee background and 7% have been in or are in foster care.
