Young Tasmanian Aboriginal Leaders Scholarships

The Tasmanian Government is continuing to deliver on our commitment to Reset the Relationship with Tasmanian Aboriginal communities with applications currently open for The Young Aboriginal Leaders Scholarship for 2020.

The Scholarship is an initiative of the Tasmanian Government to support aspiring Aboriginal leaders and promote career pathways with a scholarship program to enhance leadership and excellence.

There are two scholarships available in 2021 with a value of $2 500 each, with applications open to young Aboriginal people residing in Tasmania aged 15 to 29 years of age.

Scholarship applications close on Friday 6 November 2020, and I encourage anyone interested apply.

Information on the Scholarship Program, including the guidelines and details about how to apply are available by following this link, or by calling the Office of Aboriginal Affairs on 6165 8366, or emailing
