Surfing superstar, Layne Beachley, is making waves of a different kind, urging aspiring Australian women with talent and determination to apply for an Aim for the Stars 2014 grant by November 15 this year.

Beachley, founder of the Layne Beachley 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 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 the due date,” said Beachley, a seven-time World Champion surfer.

Since its 2003 launch, Beachley’s foundation has transformed dreams into reality for more than 270 females Australia-wide in a diverse range of areas including opera, ballet, marine science, diving, literacy education, rally driving, BMX, equestrian and hockey.

Beachley is proud to draw on her journey as an elite sportswoman to help further the ambitions of grant recipients and ease their financial burden.

“I love inspiring and motivating girls to dare to dream, pursue their passion and aspire to achieve. My desire is to help Aussie girls to focus on achieving their goals and aim for the stars by alleviating those financial pressures which I experienced early in my surfing career,” said Beachley.

The Foundation will offer $80, 000 worth of grants for 2014. Grants are awarded at the discretion of the Foundation to eligible applicants who best demonstrate their aspirations and need.
