The NSW Aboriginal Land Council’s (NSWALC) Educational Scholarship is now open for applications from today, 1 July 2022.

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

NSWALC Chairperson Danny Chapman says the Scholarship also includes additional support and growth with a paid internship at NSWALC.

“Our six-week internship gives Scholarship recipients excellent professional 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, help you build a strong resume and increase your understanding of the Land Rights network,” he said.

The six-week internship must be undertaken during an agreed time between November 2022 and February 2023,following the announcement of the successful applicants,in a NSWALC Business Unit of the Scholarship recipients’ discipline. In light of COVID-19, the timing for undertaking the internship component will be determined closer to the date.
