ABCN Fogarty Accelerate Scholarships
The ABCN Foundation (Australian Business Community Network) provides intensive mentoring scholarships through the Accelerate program.
The Fogarty Foundation is working with ABCN to level the playing field and enable young West Australians to have the opportunity to succeed, despite their background.
Accelerate is a unique three-year scholarship program, run by the ABCN Foundation, combining corporate mentoring and financial relief for high-potential West Australian students from low socio-economic backgrounds. It specifically targets students whose circumstances or background is impacting their ability to pursue tertiary pathways and achieve their potential.
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: 2019 – 2023. The Foundation will connect these scholars with other Foundation program partners to provide more outreach opportunities. We believe the mentoring, financial support and exposure to new opportunities are key to the success of these students.
