A key priority of the Lowitja Institute is to support the next generation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health researchers.

Over our history, we have funded more than 100 students through our scholarship programs. These talented scholars have undertaken PhDs, masters by research and coursework, and cadetships. By creating these pathways, the Institute is helping develop a highly trained workforce of specialised Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health researchers. Their work will inform the future policy and practice that will deliver positive health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

We also work to ensure our scholars are supported through their journey by working with researchers and health leaders across Australia to mentor and/or supervise our scholars. You can find out more about our mentoring and scholarship opportunities below.
