Aboriginal Early Childhood Education Scholarships Program
Funding body: NSW Government
The scholarships go beyond financial assistance, with the Department of Education supporting scholarship recipients throughout their studies by linking them with mentoring programs and other support.
The program will link students with an appropriate mentor for the duration of their studies.
An increase in Aboriginal early childhood teachers will help ensure that Aboriginal perspectives are embedded in early childhood education, and that preschools are welcoming and inclusive places for all children.
Up to 15 scholarships will be awarded every year from 2018 to 2020.
Successful applicants will be offered a scholarship of up to $20,000 to complete a four-year equivalent bachelor level early childhood education teaching qualification (or similar).

There’s never been a better time to start an apprenticeship in NSW. From 1 July 2018, the NSW Government is paying the course cost for 100,000 new apprenticeships – meaning students no longer face a qualification fee of up to $2000.
Apprenticeships are a great career pathway. They combine on-the-job training with classroom study to give you the skills and experience employers are looking for. Apprenticeships generally take around 3-4 years to complete, and apprentices earn a salary while they learn.
There are more than 120 different apprenticeship courses available in NSW, in a range of industries including construction, cooking, aviation and automotive. Learning a trade is a smart way to secure your future – in the next 12 months alone, experts predict NSW will need another 50,000 skilled construction workers and 19,000 chefs.
