Our Mission / Objective

The Country Education Foundation (CEF) helps rural and regional communities to establish their own local education foundations. These local foundations raise funds to provide grants to local school leavers who need a helping hand in order to make the transition into further education or jobs.

Our Beneficiaries

Rural and regional school-leavers, aged 16– 25 years

Projects in Progress

Our 40+ community-run foundations in rural/regional NSW, Qld, NT and SA, provide financial and other assistance to disadvantaged young people in their communities, to help them access post-school education and employment. The grants are ‘non-cash’ and can cover any education or work-related expenses eg text books, tools and work equipment, petrol, transport, accommodation, computers, internet access.

The CEF also runs aspiration projects aimed at encouraging rural and regional high school students to consider tertiary education as a future career option – we take groups of students to city universities ‘Experience Camps’ to expose them to university life and the opportunities of higher education.
