Impact

Since 1992 we have distributed over $9 million in funds to schools, community organisations and tertiary institutions for projects and scholarships to advance the education of girls and woman in Victoria.

With a current focus on STEM education for girls we are supporting PhD scholarships at the University of Melbourne, projects from Deakin University – Girls as Leaders in STEM (GALS) and Swinburne University of Technology – Acorns to Oak Trees and a Professional Learning Program for Primary Teachers conducted by Primary Connections. We have also provided funding for research to be conducted in the girls in STEM space.
