The scholarships of $54,000 each ($18,000 per year for three years) in Project Management and in Architecture Leadership will be available in 2016.

The CIS sponsorship of these scholarships is an extension of our commitment to the University’s Wingara Mura Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Strategy, which aims to increase Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander student and staff numbers at the University of Sydney.

In support of the key strategies behind Wingara Mura, CIS has committed to assist the two recipients financially throughout their studies and to provide them with valuable work experience and mentoring within our business units.

CIS staff and the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Indigenous Strategy and Services), along with academics and Student Services, have collaborated to create these opportunities for future students and will continue to work as a team to support the scholarship recipients and ensure their journey at the University is a positive and successful one.

The University hopes that these scholarships will attract more Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students who can bring a broader cultural perspective to the areas of Project Management and Architecture.

Applications for the scholarships are open now and interested individuals are encouraged to apply. The scholarships are available for students of all ages and not limited to school leavers, and we are promoting them throughout Australia. Should prospective applicants wish to meet with students or staff from Architecture or Engineering, this can easily be arranged.

For further information on the Scholarship in Project Management please contact the Scholarships Officer on 8627 0248 or email engineering.scholarships@sydney.edu.au. Applications for the Scholarship in Project Management close on 6 January 2016.

For further information on the Scholarship in Architecture Leadership (either a Bachelor of Design in Architecture or a Bachelor of Architecture and Environments) please contact the Student Administration Centre on 9351 3248 or email arch.sac@sydney.edu.au. Applications for the Scholarship in Architecture Leadership close on 16 January 2016.

We are offering a complete support framework for a student to study, and real a stepping stone into their profession. At CIS we can provide the students with a wide range of experiences, building a solid foundation for their future career.

Please promote these two wonderful CIS opportunities among your community.

The University also offers other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander scholarships. Further information can be found at sydney.edu.au/scholarships/current/indigenous_students.shtml.
