ABORIGINAL and Torres Strait Islander people have been encouraged to pursue their educational aspirations.

Indigenous leader Joanne Albany said the scholarship was intended to put students on the path to a rewarding career.

“I’d like to see more Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from this area go to university and get great employment at the end of it,” Ms Albany said.

“It’s about their own sense of achievement and their own sense of contributing,”

“The good thing about this scholarship is it’s flexible as long as you’re passing all of your subjects.”

Ms Albany also said the University of Wollongong was chosen for its pathway programs and support in terms of study skills and time management.

The aim of the scholarship is to provide financial assistance annually to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander persons to build knowledge and skills through an undergraduate degree at the University of Wollongong.

The two scholarships are sponsored by the Ted Kennedy Fund of the Southern Highlands Foundation, Elizabeth Williams and Brian Cosgrove.

Applicants will be from the Southern Highlands and intend to study full-time or part-time at the University of Wollongong in 2016.
