Chatham High School Gypsy Marshall wants to be the best student she can be and the Harding Miller Education Foundation academic scholarship will help her achieve this.
Gypsy has been awarded with a two-year scholarship at the annual Public Education Foundation’s awards night at The Sydney Town Hall this week.
More than 200 high school students applied for the scholarships and 76 were named the winners for 2018.
“I want this scholarship so that I can access the resources I need to be the best student I can be. It will help me strengthen my digital skills and I am keen to enhance my technological abilities,” Gypsy said.
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 two-year scholarships are awarded to students in year nine and at the end of year 10 the recipients are invited to reapply for another two years of support. The four years of scholarship support is valued at more than $20,000.
Cara Varian, at The Harding Miller Education Foundation says Gypsy was very deserving of the scholarship.
“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.
“Gypsy, (Nambucca Head High School students) Domynique Byrt and Keeley Waters are well deserving of the two-year scholarship and we are sure it will help them achieve success in coming years and put them in a position to fulfil their 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 270 scholarship recipients.
