I started my Aurora Project internship on a Greyhound bus in Darwin, travelling the 1,500 kilometers to remote Fitzroy Crossing in the West Kimberley.
Through the Aurora Project, I undertook an internship with NTSCORP’s legal team from late November to late December 2018.
Are you a budding anthropologist that would like some hands-on work in this fascinating field? Or a curious archaeologist that wants to expand and further your knowledge? Do you have a great interest in the many cultures of the Indigenous people of Australia?
For 6 weeks in November/December of 2018 I had the pleasure of being placed with the National Native Title Tribunal at the Brisbane office, as part of an internship program through Aurora. As an Indigenous applicant I also received an Indigenous Commonwealth Scholarship.
I undertook an Aurora Internship at Queensland South Native Title Services (QSNTS) in Brisbane following numerous positive recommendations of the program from fellow university students. My experience was nothing but positive, eye opening and hugely interesting.
