Moorditj Yorga Scholarship Program

We’ve all been influenced by strong women, or ‘moorditj yorga,’ in our lives – mothers, sisters, aunts, teachers, colleagues and friends.

Together, we can provide the opportunity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women – who may feel the promise of higher education has passed them by – to enter and succeed at university. Find out how you can support moorditj women so they can return to their communities as strong leaders and role models.
