87 Year 9 female students were awarded Harding Miller Education Foundation scholarships (valued at over $20,000 each) at Sydney Town Hall on Wednesday 15th May.

The Foundation gives young females across Australia who are experiencing hardship the tools and support to help optimise academic success and achieve their career aspirations.
 
Women in Australia continue to be under-represented in positions of power and over-represented in under paid jobs. Australia's Workplace Gender Equality Agency recently found that the highest paid men are earning at least $162,000 more than the highest paid women. 
 
The Harding Miller Education Foundation is on a mission to change these statistics.
 
The Harding Miller Education Foundation Scholarship program gives young girls across Australia who are experiencing hardship the tools and support to help optimise academic success and achieve their tertiary education and career aspirations. Scholarship recipients receive new laptops, high speed internet, face-to-face and online tutoring, subject and career guidance, mentoring and financial support to help cover the costs of uniforms, books and school expenses. 
 
Since its launch in 2015 the Foundation has supported over 350 scholarship recipients in NSW. This year the Foundation has expanded to provide scholarships to QLD, VIC AND SA.
 
"We are delighted to announce the Harding Miller Education Foundation 2019 scholarship winners next week. Many girls in economically disadvantaged families across Australia unfortunately don't have access to the equipment, resources and support that others from higher socio-economic families do. The Harding Miller Education Foundation is focused on providing these students with the tools and support to help them reach their full potential," says Cara Varian, Executive Director at the Harding Miller Education Foundation.
 
"In recent years we have seen such strong support from our incredible sponsors, partners, educators and volunteers which has enabled our Foundation to grow and support even more young women this year. We are very excited to be providing scholarships to QLD, VIC and SA this year and aim to have one recipient from every state and territory next year," says Cara Varian.
 
The 4-year scholarships are awarded to students in Year 9 through to Year 12 with each scholar required to show accountability and commitment throughout the program.
 
Four years of scholarship support is valued at over $20,000.
