Local St. George Girls High School Year 9 student Amina Alam 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 Amina was selected as one of the 85 winners for 2019. 

“I intend to study neuroscience and forensic pathology in university. I'm really interested in psychology and law and being able to study one of these at university would mean a lot to me. By having this scholarship assist me with school fees, I'll have the same opportunities as everyone else to achieve this,” says Amina Alam.

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 4-year scholarships are awarded to students in Year 9 through to Year 12 with each scholar required to show accountability and commitment throughout the program. The four years of scholarship support is valued at over $20,000.

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

“We are so pleased to announce Amina 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. Amina is well deserving of the 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.
