CEF offers so many opportunities outside of the monetary benefits, a network of support and a community who has your back.

Anna - Cootamundra

More than the financial support that it offered, receiving a CEF scholarship feels like a huge vote of confidence in you and your abilities.

Ceridwen - Yass

I'm proud to be part of the CEF alumni family

Anna - Cootamundra

The grant gave me self-confidence in my aspirations and a sense of responsibility to show CEF and my local foundation of Monaro that I would make them proud.

Chris - Monaro

I’m a great example of CEF giving people from all backgrounds and walks of life an opportunity to achieve more than they ever dreamed of.

James - Central Australia

It says ‘we believe in you’ – and that really counts at one of the most daunting times in a young life.
