The Engineering Aid Australia community is made up of many stakeholders, including the students’ parents and other family members who encourage their children to attend; School Principals, teachers, the Polly Farmer Foundation and the Follow the Dream Coordinators who nominate and assist the students with their applications; our Universities who host the IAES ; and our Partners who make the IAES possible with their generous financial donations and mentoring support.

Since the Indigenous Australian Engineering Schools began in 1997, over 800 students have participated in the Program.

Over the years we have received many letters from students thanking Engineering Aid Australia for the influence the program has had on their motivation to study, their career aspirations, friendships they have made and lives in general.
