The Rosemary Bishop Indigenous Education Scholarship Program

Since 2005, Yalari has been providing Indigenous children from regional, rural and remote communities across Australia the opportunity to receive a full boarding school scholarship for their entire secondary education.

All Yalari students are recipients of the Rosemary Bishop Indigenous Education Scholarship.  Yalari’s Founding Director, Waverley Stanley named the scholarship program in honour of his primary school teacher who supported him in gaining a scholarship to attend Toowoomba Grammar School in Queensland.

Each year, up to 50 scholarships are offered to Indigenous children who satisfy the selection criteria and are willing to give 100% towards their education. Scholarships include full boarding and tuition costs at one of Yalari’s partner schools.

To be eligible, the applicant must be an Indigenous child from a regional, rural or remote community in Australia who is entering Year 7 in 2020.

Applications are currently closed and will reopen on 2 January 2019.
