We give life-changing scholarships

The Public Education Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to providing life-changing scholarships to young people in public education and enhancing the value and reputation of public schools.  We recognise that disadvantage is the main factor in student achievement and success. Our targeted scholarship program focuses on specific areas of need: refugee, Indigenous, rural and remote and disability.  We also offer scholarships to education leaders in public schools across Australia in recognition of their role in transforming student outcomes and improving education standards.
