Indigenous Education at The Scots College aims to make a profound difference in boys’ lives with the opportunity to be a fine Scots boy.
Research shows that the inability to access long-term quality education is one of the major contributing factors to the cycle of unemployment, poverty and ill health experienced by some of Australia’s Indigenous communities today.
The Scots College Indigenous Bursary Fund was established to provide top quality secondary educational opportunities for young Aboriginal men. The program offers an education to boys who demonstrate leadership potential and are committed, with the support of their families, to achieving excellence in their lives.
Indigenous Education Executive Officer Mr Jonathan Samengo has twice been interviewed on radio to speak about the program at Scots, and on Indigenous education in general. Please click on the below links to listen to each interview.
