Anning, Tahnia Grace Akee, Jashub Cox, Vernon Hyde-Bulmer, Jayneisha
Hyde-Bulmer, Laura Annie Trezise, Chejuana Shanieka Simpson and Rhianna Cashmere are this year’s recipients of the
Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Foundation Scholarships.
Education is an important part of a solid foundation for employment and better
quality of life; but it is a resource not easily accessed by many Aboriginal
and Torres Strait Islander children and young people. QATSIF was established to
give Queensland's Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families increased
educational choices and life opportunities. By providing financial support,
QATSIF will help turn around inter-generational legacies of past policies and
practices, and help 'close the gap' in educational and employment
outcomes. Congratulations to all these
worthy recipients of this scholarship.
