To date, the Country Education Foundation (CEF) has provided over 2,500 non-cash grants to rural and regional youth. These grants have supported a range of education and career pursuits, such as apprenticeships, traineeships, cadetships, university degrees, TAFE certificates and entry level vocations.
To be eligible for a grant you must reside in an area where a local CEF is located.
CEFA’s Education Partnerships
The CEF has a number of education partnerships with tertiary education institutions. Our education partners are committed to working together to assist more young people from rural Australia to access tertiary education.
Each of our education partners offers additional financial assistance to recipients of a CEF grant who go on to study at a partner institution.
