More about The Pinnacle Foundation

The Pinnacle Foundation has been established to provide scholarships to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Intersex and Queer students who are marginalised or disadvantaged. We saw a big need in the LGBTIQ community that was not being met.

The foundation exists to give young LGBTIQ students the chance to achieve their full potential, to light the spark within them. For those who want to complete high school, or are ready to start TAFE or university we can help. Irrespective of the career path one aspires to we may be able to offer the financial support and resources one needs to kick-start their career path.

The foundation knows that some young LGBTIQs can face a tough time coming out to their families, friends and schools, with some finding themselves without the money and support needed to keep up their studies. Our scholarships program can help with that, but equally as important, we can provide mentoring support from someone in the same professional field to guide you through your studies. Someone who is the same gender and sexuality as you and knows what it’s like to walk in your shoes.
