Gavin Wanganeen Indigenous Scholarship appeal
I'd like to say a big thank you to the GWIS donors for enabling me to realise my dreams. Winning the scholarship has helped me enormously and will be a great stepping stone for exploring other opportunities in the future.
Racquel Austin-Abdullah, Bachelor of Visual Arts student
The Gavin Wanganeen Indigenous Scholarship 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!

Help us kick goals for disadvantaged Indigenous students and support the Gavin Wanganeen Indigenous Scholarship appeal.
