Scholarship boon for Indigenous schooling in Western Australia

Published:08 November 2018

The new CQUniCares Kate Mullin Indigenous Scholarship will be a boon for Indigenous schooling in Western Australia.

Up to $20 000 will support a Western Australian-based Indigenous student throughout their four years of study, whilst completing a Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood) or Bachelor of Education (Primary) at CQUniversity Australia.

The scholarship recipient will commit to teach for at least two years in a predominantly Aboriginal school in regional or remote Western Australia, after graduation.

Applications close on 2 January 2019, with details available via www.cqu.edu.au/scholarships.

CQUni Associate Vice-Chancellor (Western Australia), Professor Trevor Davison says the University is pleased to welcome the Kate Mullin Association as a partner in the 2018 CQUniCares Annual Appeal.

"As the appeal wraps up this week, this support will greatly assist us in our goal of supporting deserving students to reach their full potential," Professor Davison says.

The Kate Mullin Association was set up in 2011 to continue Kate Mullin’s work on improving literacy outcomes for Indigenous students. Kate Mullin was a passionate and visionary ESL Literacy consultant who made significant and far-reaching contributions to Indigenous literacy in Western Australia, and who tragically died in a car accident in 2008.
