Empowering Noah's Dreams

After graduating from St Ignatius’ College Riverview in Lane Cove, Sydney, with the support of a Yalari scholarship, 21-year-old Ngunnawal and Gamilaroi man Noah Allan has continued his academic pursuits. Noah furthered his studies at the Australian National University (ANU), where he received a Kambri Undergraduate Scholarship in 2021. He graduated in 2023 with a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Anthropology and Australian Indigenous Studies.

Currently, Noah is undertaking an Honours degree in History, after being awarded the national Neville Bonner Memorial Scholarship. His thesis aims to explore the evolution of Indigenous Australian political movements, focusing on the strategic use of petitions and other forms of representation to underscore the persistent and resilient efforts of Indigenous Australians in advocating for equality and justice.

In addition to his university studies, Noah also began working as a junior researcher at CSIRO in the Health and Biosecurity team in Canberra, as part of the Indigenous Graduate Program. Noah has been collaborating with Indigenous traditional owners on projects aimed at restoring land and waterways.

A recent highlight in Noah’s life was representing ANU and his Ngunnawal and Gamilaroi communities as an Australian delegate at the 23rd United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues in New York in early 2024.

As Noah continues his educational journey, he remains committed to making a positive contribution to his Ngunnawal and Gamilaroi communities.
