The Aurora Internship Program aims to facilitate individual professional development by building career experiences and opportunities in the sector, and to strengthen the capacity of Indigenous sector organisations by attracting and retaining talented Indigenous and non-Indigenous people. 

The Program is pleased to be able to continue to provide financial support via Scholarships for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Interns in the upcoming summer 2019/20 round – more information can be found at  The Aurora Project continues to focus on supporting both Indigenous and non-Indigenous students and graduates via internships as pathways to jobs in the sector.

The Aurora Project welcomes students and graduates with academic backgrounds in business, education, health science, law, media/communications, some social sciences (including anthropology, archaeology, cultural heritage and environmental management, Indigenous studies, history, human geography and sociology), health science (including psychology and social work) and aims to place candidates at Indigenous sector organisations Australia wide, working in native title, land rights, policy development, health and social welfare, research and social justice.  In addition, they also place Indigenous Interns at a range of Hosts outside of the sector, so long as the placements are relevant to their study and career aspirations, and they can also come from film, music and creative arts, as well as STEM related fields. 

Applications will be open from Monday 5 August through to Friday 30 August.  More information about applying can be accessed via the Aurora website at
