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 LGBT+ community that was not being met.

We exist to give young LGBT+ 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.

We know that some young LGBT+s 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.

We know from our own experience and from what our applicants tell us that having completed an education can make a big difference in this world.

We want to help LGBT+ students create the lives they dream of so that they can act as future role models for others. Our aim is to have enough money to fund many scholarships every year and with the continued support of our Community, to strengthen our national presence.

Our strategy and priorities reflect our aspirations in a very practical and achievable way and emphasise team work and collaboration.
