The Aboriginal Education Council (NSW) Inc. as Administrators of the Margaret Ida Howie Awards established “for the education of NSW Indigenous women” would like to remind you that the “Awards” for 2017 are now open.

This Award is targeted to assist Aboriginal women undertaking a course of study at University or TAFE in NSW.

Up to four (4) scholarships valued at $5,000.00 can be awarded to students accepted for enrolment in a full-time university degree in 2017 with a further ten (10) assistance awards of $1000 open to students enrolled at university, TAFE  or in a bridging program.

I seek your assistance and would be appreciative if you could publicise these awards by distributing this information through your networks and to inform any female students you may know who are already enrolled in full-time tertiary courses.
