New scholarship for Blue Mountains student

Blue Mountains Gazette:

Springwood High School student Jessica Johnson has been awarded the inaugural Go Foundation Scholarship for Indigenous students in public high schools.

The $5000 scholarship provides each student with a combination of financial assistance, cultural mentoring, leadership training and career support to successfully complete high school and move onto further education.

She will start year 11 shortly, and would like to attend university and become an Indigenous caseworker “to help young children like me to know that there is a good ending to it all.”

She’s now an Indigenous student leader at Springwood High and holds an Indigenous position on the Blue Mountains Youth Council.

Michael O’Loughlin, co-founder of the Go Foundation said: “The Go Foundation is very proud to be awarding its first public school scholarships through the Public Education Foundation.” ​The foundation seeks to empower Indigenous youth through education. Founded by Adam Goodes and Michael O’Loughlin in 2009, the foundation continues to expand its Indigenous scholarship program to address specific areas of need.
