Established by the Presentation Sisters, Queensland Congregation, to commemorate and honour the work of their founder Nano Nagle. Members of the Order have become aware of the injustices perpetrated against the traditional owners of the land and therefore have begun to be involved in the Indigenous reconciliation process and to appreciate, and learn from Indigenous spirituality, culture and history. The specific goal of these scholarships is to encourage the development of leadership skills of emerging Indigenous leaders through professional preparation during their studies. The Scholarships will have a value of $2,500 per annum for the duration of the recipient’s course.
The Scholarships will be open to Indigenous students undertaking a course of study at Brisbane campus of the University. Preference will be given, but not restricted, to applicants pursuing studies in (first) Education or (second) Nursing disciplines in their final year of study
