Fulbright Indigenous Scholarships
The scholarship was originally established in cooperation with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Commission (ATSIC) in 1993 and is now supported by the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet. As fitting with the Fulbright mission, the Fulbright Indigenous Scholarship was established to recognise Indigenous leaders’ commitment to achieving excellence, while seeking an international perspective and collaboration through their studies/research.
The Fulbright Indigenous Scholarship is available across the following categories: Postgraduate, Postdoctoral, Professional and Senior Scholar.
Note: applicants applying for General and Indigenous Scholarships may be eligible to be considered for further additional scholarship opportunities.
