NSW Roads & Maritime Services Aboriginal HSC Scholarship Program

Applications are now being taken for the NSW Roads & Maritime Services Aboriginal HSC Scholarship Program

NCCH has been provided with details of the NSW Roads & Maritime Services Aboriginal (Transport for NSW) HSC Scholarship Program for 2016.

The Aboriginal HSC Scholarship Program offers scholarships to Aboriginal students completing the NSW Higher School Certificate either at high school or TAFE. The purpose of the program is to encourage Aboriginal students to enter into a career in Transport for NSW, Roads & Maritime Services or any of the Transport Operating Agencies.

The scholarship amount is limited to a total of $5,000 per scholar over Years 11 and 12, or $2,500 per scholar in Year 12 only (a maximum of $2,500 per year). The NSW Aboriginal Education Consultative Group (AECG) receives the total amount from Transport for NSW and distributes to the scholar in the form of educational items to support them while working towards completing subjects to obtain their HSC, such as a new computer, resource books or tutoring.
