Indigenous Scholarship

The Indigenous Scholarship pillar of Dandjoo Darbalung not only provides financial support for Indigenous students, but also a community that supports, nurtures and celebrates culture and success.

Supporting our Indigenous residents

In 2017, our ‘mob’ of 50 Indigenous residents leave their home and community to study at various universities in Perth and to mix together with international and Australian residents at St Catherine’s College.

The Dandjoo Darbalung program offers Indigenous residents a custom-designed support program including:

  • An Indigenous cultural space and private study room in the College
  • A dedicated tutoring program for academic support to supplement what is offered at university
  • Support with scholarships
  • A supportive community intent on strengthening and developing identity and cultural leadership, through participation in events such as campfire circles with Elders, cultural leadership training, art projects, music and social events
  • Mentoring other Indigenous students in local and remote schools
