Pay It Forward Initiative

We are very excited about our initiative for TEDxSydney that offers our members a way to give back to those that are often marginalised in our broader community.

This year we have partnered with the Australian Indigenous Education Foundation (AIEF).

About AIEF

The Australian Indigenous Education Foundation (AIEF) was established in 2008 in response to community demand from Indigenous families who choose to enrol their children in boarding schools. Bringing together the government and private sector, AIEF provides scholarship funding for Indigenous students to complete Year 12 or tertiary studies, with career support to help them make a successful transition to their chosen fields. Backed by some of Australia’s most influential business and community leaders, AIEF has grown from one scholarship student to now having around 450 students on scholarships annually, with a network of over 600 alumni and growing by over 70 graduates each year, from over 400 communities in every state and territory of Australia.
