The Katrina Dawson Foundation is thrilled to announce that its partners for the 2016 Fellowships are the Aurora Education Foundation and the Roberta Sykes Indigenous Education Foundation.
One of the 2016 Fellows writes: ‘I would like to thank [The Katrina Dawson Foundation] for your invaluable support on the Aurora scholars study tour … I feel very privileged to be here and have kept the stories you told me of Katrina and her strength and spirit in my mind during this journey.’
The Aurora Education Foundation and the Roberta Sykes Indigenous Education Foundation are not-for-profit Foundations that enhance opportunities and support for Indigenous students to realise their academic potential.
