As a community-based organisation, CEF believes that support offered to students from the people in their towns and regions is one of the best possible β€˜lifts’ they can have as they work toward their goals.

How do we know this? πŸ€”
Because they tell us so.

CEF Coleambally-Darlington Point is an example of one of our passionate, active and committed local foundations. The community partnership they have formed with Coleambally Irrigation Cooperative Ltd (CICL) to provide a local scholarship that not only provides students with financial support but also social support, work experience and employment opportunities.

But don't just take our word for it - let George Payne the inaugural recipient of the CICL Grant Latta Bonded Scholarship tell you! πŸ˜œπŸ‘

This is one of the valuable lessons Millie George from Nyngan NSW has learned, and one all of us can be reminded of every now and again, no matter what age we are. A self-confessed 'homebody,' this is something she has had to work hard at, and it is now paying off big time.

Having finished a Bachelor of Business at @uninewengland with support from CEF Nyngan and a Findex Community Fund - CEF scholarship, Millie is now working full time for @AuctionsPlus in Sydney. She loves chatting with people everyday and working for a company that enables her to stay connected to the land and her home.

Bright, dedicated and incredibly thoughtful, Millie is proud of her journey so far and hopes sharing her story will inspire others to make the most of the opportunities presented to them, no matter how difficult it might seem at first! πŸ˜‰πŸ‘

I think we can agree recent global events have made consuming current affairs, I believe the technical term is "a real downer".

However, tonight, keep your eyes focused on #WINNews for an uplifting snippet on CEF. 🀩

Our very own Juliet and the lovely Claudia, who has been supported by CEF Orange and Districts were interviewed this morning.
