The Aurora Internship Program is pleased to once again provide Commonwealth financial support via Scholarships for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander interns in the upcoming summer 2018/19 round. Applications are now open through 31 August online via the website and information on applying can be found at http://auroraproject.com.au/about-applying-internship
We continue to focus on supporting Indigenous students and graduates via internships as pathways to jobs at over 170 Indigenous sector organisations. We are also able to place Indigenous interns at a wide range of organisations outside of the sector, so long as the placements are relevant to candidates’ study and career aspirations.
Under the Program, Scholarships will cover the interns’ daily living expenses in the amount of $750/week for a 4 to 6 week full-time placement. In addition, funding will cover travel and accommodation expenses for away-from-home placements. More information can be found at http://auroraproject.com.au/indigenous-applicants and on the attached flyer.
We are accepting applications from Indigenous candidates preferably in their 2nd year and above, with an academic background in the following disciplines: business, education, health science, law, media/communications, social sciences, psychology and social work. There are also a handful of opportunities available to candidates with film, music and the creative arts, as well as STEM related fields.
Please note that students who have taken up the ABSTUDY Residential Cost Option (and are not part of Career Trackers) are encouraged to apply.
