The Harding Miller Education Foundation Scholarship Program provides practical support to lift the educational and career aspirations of high potential Australian girls who are experiencing socio-economic disadvantage.  Each scholarship is valued at $20,000 across four years – beginning in year nine.  Applications are accepted from eligible female students (who are currently in year 8) who are enrolled in a public school within any state or territory of Australia.

Scholarships are provided as a ‘toolkit’ that students can use to support their pursuit of academic excellence. Successful applicants for 2022 will receive the following support:

  • High quality lap-top and help desk support
  • 4G mobile broadband data per month – up to 22G per month
  • $2,500.00 towards personal tutoring (either face-to-face or online) per year
  • An annual subscription to an online study help provider
  • A prepaid card loaded with $650 each year to use towards educational expenses
  • A volunteer coach/mentor

Students initially receive a two-year scholarship and, subject to student’s ongoing dedication to school and tertiary education ambitions, HMEF will also support students for a further two years until they graduate from High School.
