Education & Refugees

Each year, thousands of refugees arrive in Australia seeking asylum and a better life.

Of the many challenges they face in a new land, affordability of university education is one of the biggest.

Most of these asylum seekers are educated from their country and need Australian education to bring them par with the local work force.

Crescent Foundation wants to lend a helping hand in assisting in educating and facilitating their settlement into the workforce and into Australia generally.

The Western Sydney University the Crescent Foundation have partnered to create the Crescent Foundation Leadership scholarships program under which it grants scholarships to prospective students of part time or full time courses studying at Western Sydney University over 3 years.

All Crescent Foundation Scholars will also be entitled to enter the Western Sydney Academy program.

The Academy’s specialised learning experience focuses on developing tomorrow’s leaders through carefully tailored academic units, workshops, projects and events.

If you are a student and would like to apply for a scholarship, please download our brochure or contact us.
