Applications for the indigenous scholarship for 2019 are now open

NAAUC values the contribution of Indigenous students to both the National Conference and to the individual’s residence. NAAUC strongly believes that residential communities can play a significant role in making university campuses more welcoming to Indigenous students.

This scholarship was created as a result of NAAUC’s Cultural Audit in 2018.

Please note that this scholarship covers the cost of a full delegate ticket, but does not cover transport costs or spending money while at conference.


  • Identifies as an Indigenous Australian.

  • Currently living in a residential community.

  • Interest in improving the residential community environment at your residence and nationally.

Please note that while having a leadership position at your residence will be viewed favourably, it is not a precondition to applying for the scholarship.
