The ABCN Foundation (Australian Business Community Network) provides intensive mentoring scholarships through the Accelerate program.
This three-year program targets exceptional students who face economic, family or social challenges that impact on their study or capacity to pursue their desired tertiary pathways. Scholarship recipients receive support from a dedicated corporate mentor and financial assistance for Years 11, 12 and their first year of tertiary education. ABCN has been working with students from low-SES schools since 2005.
The Foundation is excited to support six students over the next five years, with the first two year 11 students starting in 2019. The Foundation will connect these scholars with other program partners including Harry Perkins, Perth Festival and the UWA Fogarty Scholars.
We believe the mentoring, financial support and exposure to new opportunities are key to the success of these students.
