GradAustralia and GenerationOne are proud to announce the GenerationOne Indigenous Scholars Program. The scholarship aims to foster the next generation of Indigenous leaders by supporting Indigenous students living away from home and attending a residential college whilst undertaking tertiary studies.

The scholarship is open to Australian citizens of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Island descent.
