Nine years ago there had never been an Indigenous Australian studying at Oxford or Cambridge. Today, 44 Indigenous postgraduates have been accepted to these two universities and so far, 27 out of 27 have graduated. These high-achieving Scholars are the role models for the next generation.
The Scholarship Program, Executive Education Bursaries and Study Tour have opened pathways to international academic excellence for Indigenous students.
The Programs complement each other – the Aurora Study Tour to universities in the UK and the US, strengthens aspirations and demonstrates what is possible, and the Charlie Perkins and Roberta Sykes Scholarships and Roberta Sykes Bursaries (all administered by Aurora) make overseas study a reality.
