The Aboriginal Women’s Legal Education Trust (AWLT) provides scholarships to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women to attend Western Australian universities to study law.
The scholarships are awarded to indigenous women with the potential and enthusiasm to succeed at law school. They provide holders with financial and other support (mentoring, networking and employment access) to complete their studies and begin their careers. The objective of the Trust is to produce law graduates who are job-ready and who have access to professional employment at the conclusion of their degree.
As a primary goal of the scholarship is to strengthen indigenous communities through educational opportunities, the Trust seeks applicants who are academically able and committed to contributing to their own communities.
