Australian Indigenous Education Foundation
According to the 2016 census, 47% of Indigenous young adults had completed Year 12, compared to 79% of non-Indigenous young Australians. Australians with a Year 12 qualification are more likely to be employed; to pursue higher education; and to earn a higher income than those who do not complete Year 12.
In contrast to this, in 2018, the Year 12 Completion Rate for Indigenous students with AIEF was 92%!
AIEF provides scholarships which enable Indigenous students in financial need to attend some of Australia’s leading schools and universities. They also offer mentoring and career support so students make a successful transition from school to further studies or employment, productive careers and fulfilling lives.
