The Pinnacle Foundation has been established to provide scholarships to high-potential young people of diverse genders and sexualities (LGBTIQ) who can't afford to pay for their education. We also provide each scholarship recipient a mentor experienced in the student's field of study.
Applicants must: be Australian citizens or permanent residents of at least 16 years of age and no older than 24; identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender questioning or queer and, because of this, have personal or social circumstances which provide significant challenges to the completion of education, or have been marginalised due to sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression; take their studies seriously and have shown academic achievement during their years at school; demonstrate their commitment to completing Year 12, a tertiary degree or vocational training; demonstrate leadership skills; have good academic results; want to make a difference in the world; be proud to stand up for the LGBT rights; and be dedicated to the LGBT community.
The value of the scholarship is determined on a case-by-case basis, depending on the student's needs and circumstances.
