This scholarship is open to teachers currently teaching aspects of Aboriginal education across the curriculum in NSW schools and TAFE NSW campuses. The scholarship is for the study of aspects of Aboriginal education relevant to the NSW curriculum in the K-12 range or in TAFE courses.

For over 50 years Teachers Mutual Bank has provided financial services to Australian teachers and is the only remaining bank dedicated to the education sector. With over 200,000 members and more than $8 billion in assets, we're one of Australia's largest mutual banks. However, one thing has never changed, our passion for helping members' financial futures and giving back to their community.

The successful applicant will undertake a study tour and follow-up activities of up to five weeks within Australia, with optional virtual international connections undertaken as appropriate. Study tour travel is to be completed in one block by 30 June 2023, with individual follow-up activities and reporting to be completed within 90 days of study tour completion.

Time may involve formal study (eg, undertaking a short course at a respected tertiary institution) or may involve a program of visits to sites, schools and institutions to conduct interviews, observe exemplary practices and collect resources for the preparation of teaching materials related to the specific scholarship category.

A portion of time (up to one week) should be allocated toward follow-up dissemination activities (eg, experience-sharing, professional learning) within and across NSW, either in-person or virtually. Study tour follow-up activities and outcomes should ideally include specific reference to enhancing rural and regional education.

One scholarship of $15,000 will be offered for travel during 2023.
