The Lowitja Institute Alumni Project

Over our 20-year 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. We are now seeking to celebrate their achievements and assess the impact of the program through the Lowitja Institute Alumni Project.

Project participants are all recipients of scholarships offered by the four Cooperative Research Centres (please read about our history). They have an opportunity to connect with their fellow scholars, as well as provide insight into workforce development, career pathways and knowledge generation in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health.

The project involves a number of activities including an online survey, face-to-face workshops, participation in the Lowitja Institute International Indigenous Health and Wellbeing Conference 2019 held in Darwin, and opportunities to bring everyone together for networking, celebration and collaboration.
