For ag scientist Anna Ingold, help from CEF has made all the difference. “It inspired me to be ambitious, created a supportive network and opened doors,” she says.
In 2010, CEF offered Anna a small grant that enabled the then 18-year-old to move from her home town of Cootamundra in southern NSW to Wagga Wagga to study Agricultural Science. The grant was made through CEF’s local foundation at Cootamundra, whose community-based members recognised Anna’s potential.
After being awarded her degree, Anna is now back in Cootamundra and working to give something back to the community that put its faith in her.
“CEF offers so many opportunities outside of the monetary benefits, it offers a network of support and a community who has your back. I’m proud to be part of the CEF alumni family.”
