CEF Far West provides much needed assistance and support to help local youth achieve their post high school education, training and vocation aspirations. We recognise that the cost of regional students pursuing their post high school goals is often much greater than those of their metropolitan counterparts and that sometimes these costs can be prohibitive.
Thanks to donations from local individuals and businesses we provide financial grants to students who need support. The funds come directly from our local community and celebrate the aspirations of local youth. It’s our way of saying “we believe in you and want to support your goals”.
Country Education Foundation of Australia (CEF) in partnership with the McLean Foundation, Eureka Benevolent Foundation and the Clifford Family Foundation are offering three x three-year scholarships to help Broken Hill students achieve their university and career goals. The McLeans have a strong connection to the area, with Rob growing up in Broken Hill. Roger Massy-Greene and Leigh Clifford began their successful careers in Broken Hill, and now want to give back to the community through their family foundations.
The scholarships are available to first year undergraduate university students and are administered through the CEF National Office.
Please note: due to the joint administration of these scholarships, all three foundations will have access to your application and personal details. Should you have any questions or concerns, please call (02) 6362 3162.
