Applications are currently open for Country Education Foundation (CEF) of Boorowa grants.

Young people between the ages of 16 and 25 who are embarking on tertiary education and training are urged to apply for funding assistance from the CEF of Boorowa.

Grants are available to 16 to 25 year olds who have lived, or attended school in the region for the majority of their high school years.

The cost to access education is much higher for regional and rural students pursuing their post high school goals. These costs can be prohibitive.

CEF of Boorowa is a charity organisation that has been supporting school leavers for over 25 years with annual grants.

CEF of Boorowa President, Justin Fleming said grants aren’t awarded on merit. “We support young kids who have ambition,” Mr Fleming said.

“These education opportunities don’t come without a cost. This shows the community is behind them.”

The grants contribute towards apprenticeships, traineeships, cadetships, diplomas, certificate level studies, university qualifications or employment. They are strictly to cover education and employment expenses.

“There are great opportunities for young kids who have aspirations,” Mr Fleming said.

“Hope to have a positive impact for kids so they can return and in turn contribute to the fabric of rural Australia.”

“We do it to help bush kids get out and into it. That’s still very much the case for some families who need a bit of a hand.”

The four essential selection criteria are demonstrated need, aged between 16 to 25, have gone to school in Boorowa or living in the region; and show commitment to achieving their goal.

Applications can be lodged online at www.cef.org.au until October 30.

Any enquiries should be directed to Justin Fleming on 0429 820 389 or boorowaeducationfoundation@gmail.com.
