Fellowships for a Senior or Postgraduate Student
This support is for a woman who has already demonstrated some track record of achievement in her chosen field, and just needs an extra boost to make the most of her opportunities. Since 2015, we have partnered with the Aurora Education Foundation to provide these fellowships.
The Aurora Education Foundation is a non-profit that offers a range of education initiatives focusing on increasing opportunities and support for Indigenous students to assist them to realise their potential at school, university and beyond.
Selection criteria includes a combination of academic excellence, leadership, involvement in the broader community (e.g., in sport or cultural activities), and financial circumstances. In addition, applicants must be women of, and identify with, being of Aboriginal or Torres Island descent, and be able to show the benefit of their studying to their community.
