Aurora aims to inspire the academic and career aspirations and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. We wish to see Indigenous Australians inspired by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander academic role models, empowered to excel in tertiary education and becoming the leaders and agents of change in Australian society we know they can be.
The Aurora Education Foundation (Aurora) is a national not for profit organisation that works to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to achieve in education. Affiliated with The Aurora Project, we also deliver the activities of the Charlie Perkins Scholarship Trust and Roberta Sykes Education Foundation. In 2017, we confirmed The Aspiration Initiative as the name of our high school program.
