Our Mission / Objective

Aurora’s vision is for a society where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have the same educational opportunities as all Australians.

We inspire and support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander career aspirations through education; supporting and growing the numbers of Australia’s future Indigenous leaders, mentors and academic role models.

 

Our Services

Aurora delivers a suite of interrelated programs that walk with Indigenous students through each stage of their educational development and builds the future Indigenous professional workforce.

Our High School Program, The Aspiration Initiative, provides intensive academic support over a 6 year period to Indigenous high school students and builds their confidence, resilience, and aspirations.

Aurora’s Indigenous Scholarships Portal is an innovative technology solution that simplifies the process of applying for scholarships to allow more Indigenous students to access financial support and complete their degrees.

Internship Program facilitates funded internships for Indigenous university students and graduates at Indigenous-sector organisations, and builds vital career exposure and pathways.

Aurora’s annual International University Study Tour takes high-performing Indigenous students and graduates to visit some of the world’s leading universities in the UK and US, fostering their aspirations and capacity to apply for postgraduate studies to these institutions.

International Postgraduate Scholarship program supports talented Indigenous scholars to aspire to, apply for and successfully complete postgraduate studies at world-leading universities. Scholarships are awarded through the Charlie Perkins Scholarship Trust and the Roberta Sykes Indigenous Education Foundation and delivered by Aurora. 

Academic Outreach program connects outstanding Indigenous scholars from Aurora’s network with high school students in schools and communities.

Our Beneficiaries

Aurora is proud to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to the benefit of all Australians.

Projects in Progress

Aurora’s programs provide Indigenous students with intensive, ongoing and tailored support through each stage of their educational journeys, from high school through to postgraduate studies.

If you would like to see Aurora reach more students in more locations, please visit the ‘How to help us’ page, or donate.
