Putting historical research into practice: My Aurora internship at AIATSIS
Spending six weeks at APO NT via the Aurora Internship Program was the perfect end to my time at university and start of a next chapter. I just finished my Honours year and stepping out of the books and into the real world was a difficult but much needed and welcomed change.
I was privileged enough to undertake a six-week Aurora Internship in Brisbane over the summer with Youth Justice, which is now known as Child Safety, Youth and Women (CSYW).
In the summer of 2018 I was fortunate enough to undertake a six-week internship placement through the Aurora Internship Program. I applied for an Aurora Internship through the social sciences stream after graduating from the University of Western Australia with a major in Archaeology.
I undertook an Aurora internship for 5 weeks in summer of 2018-19. The Aurora Internship Program is aimed at getting Indigenous and non-Indigenous law and social science students into internships in Indigenous sector organisations.
Over the Summer period, I was fortunate to complete a 5-week internship in the Aboriginal History Archive at Moodani Balluk, Victoria University through the Aurora Internship Program.
