A Harding Miller scholarship donation is the most direct way for philanthropists around the world to support the increase in education for girls throughout Australia. Harding Miller scholarships are available to girls in all of Australia’s states and territories, meaning that no girl will be left behind in receiving the financial aid and social support required to complete their education, for a better chance at life.
As a fully registered Australian Charity, the Harding Miller Education Foundation offers complete transparency to its donors so you can be sure of exactly where your donation is going 100% of the time.
How Your Donation Helps Girls Receive an Education
By being awarded a Harding Miller Education Foundation academic scholarship, girls are not only given the tools and resources that they need to complete their high school studies, but to build direct pathways to tertiary and further education in the future. Multiple studies have shown the positive effects on disrupting the poverty cycle from girls receiving a quality education. Our purpose at the Harding Miller Education Foundation is to provide resources, both financial and social, that girls from low socio-economic and disadvantaged backgrounds need to achieve their goals.
The Harding Miller educational scholarship is a 4-year program supporting girls in public high schools around Australia from Year 9, through to the completion of Year 12. The scholarship program allocates donations directly to the girls in the program to ensure that they have all the tools required for a successful high school career.
How Your Donation is Distributed
When you donate towards a Harding Miller educational scholarship, you can be assured that 100% of your donation is going directly to the girls in the scholarship program. Foundation running costs are funded under a separate corpus, so there is no need for concern that your donation is being misdirected. Scholarship donations are used to cover the costs of girls attending public high school in Australia and can be dispersed for many of the costs associated with studying including:
In addition to the financial resources provided through donation, the Harding Miller Education Foundation also provides personal coaching and mentoring to each girl, from a team of volunteer coaches, for the duration of her scholarship.
How Your Donation Makes a Difference in Young Lives
Girls are proven to earn up to 25% more income for each year of additional education they complete, and they are much more likely to invest in their children’s education in the future. Your donation to the Harding Miller scholarship program directly assists us in providing educational opportunities that would otherwise be unavailable to young girls, at the very foundation of their educational career.
The selection criteria for a Harding Miller Education Foundation scholarship focuses on girls with high academic potential who are experiencing disadvantage, to aid them in overcoming social and financial limitations. Providing an educational scholarship to girls in these kinds of situations helps to level the playing field with peers who are more socio-economically advantaged; effectively working towards closing the gap for disadvantaged students in receiving a quality education.

We have a number of our donors who choose to support a full scholarship together with their family members.
This may be because they want to give back to a particular community or a girl from a particular background such as Indigenous or ATSI.
Each year they make payments totaling $5K. These can be made in one upfront payment or over the course of the year.
