Year 9 girls who struggle to continue their studies due to socioeconomic disadvantages receive support from the Harding Miller Education Foundation Scholarship Program. In 2022, 43 girls from Queensland public schools received approximately $20,000 to help them continue their education.

Exceptional female scholars with the potential to become a leader in the future currently studying in Year 8 are invited to apply for this scholarship every year. These students have faced immense hardships in their lives, and the scholarships provide them with an opportunity to continue their studies in school and university.

That’s why the Harding Miller Education Foundation works hard to break all barriers and provide learning opportunities to promising female scholars. Since its inception in 2016, the foundation has helped support more than 800 students through its scholarships.
