The Early Childhood Directorate is offering scholarships up to $20,000 to support Aboriginal students wishing to complete a bachelor-level early childhood teaching qualification.
This program has been developed to help address the shortage of Aboriginal early childhood teachers in NSW and to ensure children have access to inclusive and culturally appropriate education programs.
Applications are open to educators working in the sector and to prospective students interested in becoming early childhood teachers. The Application Guidelines are available for the 2019 round, which is open until 7 December 2018. Applications should be submitted through the Smarty Grants portal.
