The Crescent Foundation

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."

-Nelson Mandela

The Crescent Foundation Leadership Scholarships were established to assist refugees and provide life-changing educational opportunities.

Each year, thousands of refugees arrive in Australia seeking a better life. One the many challenges faced is the affordability of university education. Whether starting a new journey through university education or the need to up-skill an existing degree obtained overseas; the Crescent Foundation aims to assist in facilitating the transition into the workforce and indeed Australian society.

The Crescent Foundation Leadership Scholarship is an allowance of $7,500 annually for 3 years. In addition, the Crescent Foundation Scholars may also be eligible for admission to The Academy within Western Sydney University.

The Academy engages with high-achieving students to maximise their potential through programs that support and encourage academic enrichment, leadership and professional development, and community citizenship both locally and globally.
