Indigenous Business Australia – IBA Scholarship 2010

The Indigenous Business Australia (IBA) Scholarship Fund provides financial support to enable recipients to achieve nationally recognised qualifications – with a focus on financial, commercial and/or economic management. IBA is seeking applicants who are able to share their qualifications to enhance their community’s economic and financial development.

Scholarships are intended for those who face financial barriers that might otherwise restrict their options for further study. IBA’s Scholarship Fund acknowledges that mature-age students are often required to make great personal and financial sacrifices in order to complete qualifications that will help advance their personal and career goals.

The IBA Scholarship Fund provides recipients with a broad range of financial support covering not only course fees, but day-to-day study expenses (telephone, broadband, child care, transport) and costs that may arise if living away from home (relocation costs, accommodation costs and travel costs for family visits).

Educational Qualifications

Your studies should be related to the fields of commercial and economic management; for example, business, accounting, financial management, commerce, tourism management, and governance.

Qualifications can be attained through Vocational Education and Training (VET) or TAFE courses, Undergraduate degrees or Capability Training short courses.

Eligibility

To be eligible for IBA’s Scholarship Fund, you must be:

  • Of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander descent
  • An Australian resident
  • Of mature age – no younger than 19 years old, and have not finished secondary school within the past 18 months
  • Able to demonstrate support from your employer, community or an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander organisation to undertake study.

IBA recommends you read the Scholarship Fund Guidelines for further information about the application and selection process, and the expectations and requirements of scholarship recipients.
