Local James Fallon High School Year 9 student Brooke King has been awarded with a 4-year Harding Miller Education Foundation academic scholarship at the annual Public Education Foundation’s awards night at Sydney Town Hall.

Hundreds of high school students applied for the scholarships and Brooke was selected as one of the 85 winners for 2019. 

“I am very motivated to achieve academically, and it has been my lifelong dream to study Marine Biology. I am hoping to get a swimming scholarship at a very good university either in Australia or in the USA. I would be the first in my family to go to Uni and the Harding Miller scholarship will help me achieve this," says Brooke King.

The Harding Miller Education Foundation is focused on supporting hardworking and high academic achieving young women. The scholarship program provides scholarship winners with valuable tools and support to help optimise academic success and achieve their career aspirations. 

Scholarship recipients receive new laptops, high speed internet, face-to-face and online tutoring, subject and career guidance, mentoring and financial support to help cover the costs of uniforms, books and school expenses.

The 2-year scholarships are awarded to students in Year 9 and at the end of year 10 the recipients are invited to reapply for another 4-years of support. The four years of scholarship support is valued at over $20,000. 

Cara Varian, at The Harding Miller Education Foundation says Brooke was very deserving of the scholarship. 

“We are so pleased to announce Brooke as one of the scholarship recipients for 2019. At the Harding Miller Education Foundation, we are focused on providing talented, hardworking and high achieving young Australian women with tools, resources and support to help them reach their full potential. Brooke is well deserving of the 2-year scholarship and we are sure it will help her to achieve success in coming years and put her in a position to fulfil her tertiary education and career aspirations after school,” says Cara Varian, Executive Director Harding Miller Education Foundation. 

Since its launch in 2015 the Harding Miller Education Foundation has supported 293 scholarship recipients.
