Programs for Indigenous students

The Aurora Education Foundation’s vision is to transform the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians through education, one life at a time, growing the numbers of Indigenous leaders, mentors and academic role models. Under the banner of The Aspiration Initiative (TAI), we provide interconnected education programs, products and services that challenge low expectations, build aspirations and support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians to realise their academic potential. We work to change the current narrative of Indigenous education, so that outstanding achievement is seen as the norm rather than the exception.

  1. TAI’s Academic Enrichment Program (AEP) for Indigenous students
  2. The Indigenous Scholarships website
  3. Single Scholarship Application Project 
  4. The Indigenous Aurora Indigenous Scholars International Study Tour (the ‘Study Tour’)
  5. International Scholarships
  6. The Charlie Perkins Trust (CPT)
  7. The Charlie Perkins Childrens Trust for Children & Students (CPTCS) 
  8. Roberta Sykes Indigenous Education Foundation (RSIEF)
