The Country Education Foundation of Australia (CEF) supports youth in rural areas through financial grants for education and employment expenses. These grants contribute towards apprenticeships, traineeships, cadetships, diplomas, certificate level studies, university qualifications or employment.


Grants are supplied by local branches of the CEF, and each branch has different grants on offer. CEF grants are non-cash. Instead you are reimbursed for education or work related expenses, or a supplier can be paid directly. Grants can cover any education or work related expenses, eg. text books, tools, work equipment, petrol, transport, accommodation, computers, internet access.
