Aurora Education Foundation



Aurora Education Foundation’s vision is for a future where there is no education gap and where the next generation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians achieve equitable participation at the highest level – in the professions, in boardrooms and across government.

We exist to transform lives by investing in potential and inspiring excellence through education at the highest level.

The funds we raise are used to implement our programs providing educational opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across Australia.

Your support can help Aurora to make a real difference.



Aurora’s programs engage and support Indigenous students to build the academic skills needed to reach their career goals, whether this is by graduating from high school with the foundational skills necessary to run their own small business, or by attending TAFE or university, or even completing a doctorate at Harvard University. At Aurora, we believe that engaging Indigenous students in education is the way to create deep, lasting change.

Aurora delivers a suite of interrelated programs that walk with Indigenous students through each stage of their educational development, supporting them to obtain the skills and qualifications to join the professional workforce. 



  • High School Program - The Aspiration Initiative, provides intensive academic support over a 6 year period to Indigenous high school students to increase rates of university eligibility.


  • Indigenous Scholarships Portal - is an innovative technology-based solution that simplifies the process of applying for scholarships for Indigenous students for tertiary study in Australia and abroad.


  • Indigenous Internship Program - facilitates internships for Indigenous university students and graduates into Indigenous-sector organisations and builds vital career exposure and pathways.


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


  • International Executive Education - program support Indigenous managers and leaders to attend short courses that grow skills confidence to lead their organisations.


  • Academic Role Model Outreach - program facilitates outstanding Indigenous academic scholars from Aurora’s network to become role models into schools in communities.
