The Gavin Wanganeen Indigenous Scholarship – still kicking goals!
The Gavin Wanganeen Indigenous Scholarship, established in 2005, is directly changing the lives of individuals who, in turn, are inspiring others to change their lives, thanks to the generosity of our many donors!
Many of our scholarship graduates are now working in the areas of Indigenous health, education and social work while others are making their mark in the field of arts and media.
Help us kick goals for disadvantaged indigenous students and support the Gavin Wanganeen Indigenous Scholarship appeal.
