An Australian research study prepared by the Centre for International Research on Education Systems (CIRES) for the Mitchell Institute at Victoria University, ‘Educational Opportunity 2020’ has found there are significant gaps for Indigenous children, children from low socioeconomic backgrounds and children living in remote areas; these children are at least twice as likely as their peers to have a developmental vulnerability. At St Hilda’s, we believe we have an obligation to play our part in closing the education opportunity gap for girls. By supporting a girl in need, you are helping to make generational change.
How you can make a difference
Scholarships can provide girls who may not have the means to attend St Hilda’s the opportunity to flourish in our learning environment. With your help, St Hilda’s has an opportunity to build a diverse community of learners who have a genuine desire and appreciation for education. Our needs-based, Indigenous, and boarding scholarships provide a St Hilda’s education to a girl who would not have the opportunity, due to financial means, to attend.
