The GO Foundation

The GO Foundation values are integrity, equality, opportunity and strength in culture.

The GO Foundation is proud to partner with Western Sydney University and invite applications for GO Foundation Scholarships. GO was founded by Sydney Swans legends, Adam Goodes (Adnyamathanha and Narungga man) and Michael O’Loughlin (Kaurna, Ngarrindjeri and Narungga man) to empower young Indigenous Australians through education.

The purpose of the GO Foundation is to create opportunities for young people through the delivery of a holistic program, with a focus on culture and aspiration to help them reach their full potential. The GO Foundation Scholarship Program provides wrap around support to help with all educational needs. With the help of GO Foundation partners, recipients of a GO Scholarship are introduced to a broad range of access and opportunities to broaden students’ perspectives and provide access to cultural experiences through GO’s Culture Connect Days.

As an Aboriginal led initiative, the GO Program design is firmly grounded in first-hand knowledge and experience regarding how to improve the quality and outcomes of education for Indigenous people.
