The Country Education Foundation of Walgett (CEF Walgett) was established to provide much needed financial assistance and support to local youth to help them achieve their post high school education, training and vocational aspirations.
CEF Walgett is a local foundation of the Country Education Foundation (CEF), a national not-for-profit organisation helping rural and regional youth access education, training and jobs through grants, scholarships, support services and resources.
We recognise that the cost of regional students pursuing their post- high school goals is often much greater than those of their metropolitan counterparts, and that sometimes these costs can be prohibitive. With a passion for seeing rural and regional youth succeed, CEF Walgett fundraises throughout the year and accepts donations from local residents and businesses in order to provide financial grants to students who need an extra helping hand. The funds come directly from your local community – none of it is government funded – celebrating the aspirations of local youth and working to help them achieve these aspirations. It’s our way of saying “we believe in you and want to support your goals”.
