This year we received a record number of applications from some inspirational females around the country. The standard was extremely high and decision making was tough. The large number of females that applied reinforces just how important it is for the Foundation to continue to grow so we can increase this level of support. We are committed to doing this.
This year The Foundation received 700 applications for grants from a range of talented women across Australia. We have been overwhelmed by the number of ambitious and dedicated females who have put their hand up for some financial and moral assistance to help achieve their goals. These applications have been passed onto the Foundation’s Board Members for review and the successful 2014 grant recipients will be announced on our website and on Facebook by Monday 3rd February 2014. We look forward to introducing these girls and women to you soon.
Applications for 2014 grants close in just over a month so the Foundation is inviting girls and women across Australia to apply. An opportunity exists for all females striving to achieve their goals in sporting, academic, community, business or cultural pursuits. Grant applications should be completed on-line via our website by 15th November 2013. Grants will be awarded at the discretion of the Foundation, to deserving applicants who meet the criteria and best demonstrate their aspirations and need.
Layne Beachley and her Aim for the Stars Foundation, is inviting all Australian females aged 12 – 26 years who need funding to achieve goals in their sporting, academic, community, business, environmental or cultural pursuits to complete their applications online.
Any hard-working female who is committed to pursuing her passion and needs financial support deserves a helping hand and should apply for an Aim for the Stars 2014 grant by 15th November 2013.
The Layne Beachley Aim for the Stars Foundation has been included as one of the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles official charity partners for the 2013 season and as such Aim for the Stars will be fundraising at Brookvale Oval on 13th May 2013 when the Sea Eagles go up against the Roosters.
