The Attorney-General’s Department has commissioned FRSA to administer another scholarship program for people of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and/or Culturally and Linguistically Diverse backgrounds. The scholarship program covers the cost of completing eligible courses in post-separation service delivery. This email is to let you know that the first round, for courses that commence in the second half of 2015, is now open.
A second round will be conducted in November/December 2015 for courses that commence in 2016.
I invite you to consider either your own eligibility for applying for the scholarship and/or encourage others within your workplace and broader networks to consider their eligibility for applying. The attached Information Booklet will provide you with all the information you need to assess eligibility.
