Applications Open for NSW Aboriginal Land Council’s Educational Scholarship

The NSW Aboriginal Land Council’s (NSWALC) Educational Scholarship is now open for applications from today, 1 July 2021.

The NSWALC Educational Scholarship provides two $10,000 scholarships across NSW and is aimed at Aboriginal students in their penultimate year at university.

NSWALC Chair Anne Dennis said the Scholarship includes an additional paid internship at NSWALC.

“Our six-week internship gives Scholarship recipients experience and support on their pathway from education into employment.

“The NSWALC internship will give you valuable practical experience in your field of study and develop your work place skills and understanding of the Land Rights network,” she said.

The six-week internship is to be undertaken during an agreed time between November 2021 and February 2022, following the announcement of the successful applicants,in a NSWALC Business Unit of the Scholarship recipients’ discipline. However, in light of ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, the timing for undertaking the internship component will be determined closer to the date.

Fields of study may include law, finance, business, media & communications, human resources, land & environment, planning, policy, or property management.

NSW Aboriginal university students interested in applying can access the application form from the Scholarship page on the NSWALC website by clicking here.

Applications for the NSWALC Educational Scholarship close at 5:00pm on Tuesday 31 August 2021.
