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.

Today we celebrate #WorldMusicDay! 🎵🎼

Meet #CurtinGrad Imogen Bath (Bsc Hlth Stdies, 2019) who works as a pre-primary teaching assistant by day and local Perth DJ by night.
 
Imogen was introduced into the world of DJing through @emascurtin, which is a Curtin student-run club centred around an appreciation and passion for all electronic and dance music genres.
 
“I got into DJing through @emascurtin, I enjoy it because it’s very empowering and energetic. It’s a form of art, not just about twisting a few knobs here and there.”
 
Her biggest highlight was being handpicked to support Australian musician @nicolemillar on the Perth leg of her national tour.
 
Imogen’s top three tips for any grads wanting to pursue music as a career or side-hustle:
 
👉 Support local artists and their events
👉 Professionally network wherever you can
👉 Never doubt yourself and put your work online

Fleeing the Taliban to seek asylum in Australia in 2013, #CurtinGrad Muhammad Majid never imagined he would go to university let alone graduate.
 
Despite the challenges of settling down in a new country, Muhammad was motivated to study but with no financial support it was near impossible for him to attend university, until he received the Curtin Humanitarian Fund Scholarship.
 
He credits the scholarship for allowing him to graduate with a Master of Information Systems and Technology in 2017 which has led to him becoming the Director of a successful local WA business.

Leaving his day job in 2015, Curtin graduate and entrepreneur Ross Drennan (BComm Property & Accounting, 2007) is revitalising Perth one bespoke bar at a time.
 
From batting together at the local cricket club when they were 14, Ross and his best mate Drew Flanagan are the brains behind @theoldsynagoguefremantle and @thebeaufortperth. 
 
With no signs of slowing down, Ross and Drew now have their sights set on two exciting new projects for Yagan Square and South Perth.
 
So, what’s Ross’ biggest piece of career advice? 👇
 
“Don’t think because your degree says one thing that your degree won’t help you or lead you into doing something completely different. University if anything teaches us how to think and if you aspire to be an entrepreneur go for it!”

Congratulations to Curtin graduate and @thequickflick & @beautyfridge Founder and CEO Iris Smit (BAppSc Interior Architecture Hons, 2017) on making the @forbes #30Under30 for 2022. 👏🎉
 
With a desire to master the perfect wing-tip, @thequickflick eyeliner stamp was born in Iris’ living room and grew from being a popular local business to a flourishing international brand.
 
That’s not all, she is also the brains behind @beautyfridge, a miniature fridge that stores skincare and makeup products and just recently launched a brow-sculpting lamination gel as an alternative to getting brows down professionally.
 
“What motivates me is customer’s feedback – it’s so heartwarming to be able to make someone’s day just that little bit easier.”

During #COVID19, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students have been 30% more likely to drop out of university than their peers.
 
Curtin's Director of Indigenous Engagement Health Sciences, Cheryl Davis believes that supporting these students with financial assistance will help reduce the risk of them dropping out of university, allowing them to become our health leaders of tomorrow.
 
We know that a diverse network of healthcare professionals and clinicians means a healthy future for Western Australian communities but to build that network we need many more Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to graduate with a health sciences degree.

Meet Curtin Screen Arts Honours graduate and young Yawuru filmmaker @jason_hajiali who is pushing the boundaries of Indigenous screen arts. 🎥💫

In his latest award-winning documentary, 'Through Her Eyes', Jason reflects on his childhood, the toxicity of social media and conversations with his grandmother and Stolen Generations survivor, Phyllis.

The sensitive yet powerful film is guided by Jason’s voice as he attempts to strengthen his cultural identity and reconnect with his heritage by sharing his grandmother’s stories, which have ultimately helped shape his understanding of what it means to be Aboriginal.

“I hope that by bringing my story to life, it will help others to create empowering films and stories. That’s what really keeps me going.”

The film is currently screening as part of the 2022 Revealed Exhibition: New and Emerging WA Aboriginal Artists at @fremantleartscentre until late June. 🎥 Find out more here 👉🏽 https://bit.ly/3xm1tqh
