The Hon Sharon Bird, Minister for Higher Education and Skills has announced a funding boost of $400,000 for the successful University of Canberra-Aurora Project Partnership. This project improves the career pathways of young Indigenous people. Up to 90 Indigenous students will benefit from the funding boost.
‘Closing the gap on Indigenous disadvantage is a national imperative, and education is a major part of this,' Minister Bird said. Funding also contributes to scholarships to undertake postgraduate study overseas and a popular scholarships website for Indigenous students.
