Kambri Scholars

Kambri Scholarships enrich lives and communities.

At ANU, we are committed to offering opportunities to Indigenous Australians, and ensuring that all students can achieve their dreams.

ANU strives to be a university of choice for Indigenous students. We want to be a place where Indigenous students realise their potential and have the opportunity to pursue their dreams.

Student success is not just about financial support. It is about identifying the most appropriate services that will ensure a student’s success. The Kambri Scholarships will provide students an on campus experience that will be both challenging and exciting.

The program gives Indigenous students from across the country the opportunity to come to ANU, focus on their studies and go on to fulfilling careers. The scholarships cover the learning lifecycle, from undergraduate to postgraduate to employment opportunities.

Each Kambri Scholarship package may include:

  • On-campus residential accommodation for the first two years of study, with assistance provided to transition to off-campus accommodation from year three onwards, depending on the student’s needs;
  • Access to an allowance for two return trips home per year; and
  • A stipend for living expenses.

We want to ensure that, from 2020, all incoming Indigenous students are supported on a needs base for the full duration of their degree. With your support, we will establish a $50 million endowment for the Kambri Scholarships, including a University commitment to match donations 1:1.

By supporting the next generation of Indigenous scholars, you are ensuring that there is a future scholarly community that fosters long-term mentorship, influence and giving back to Country.

Together we can ensure that Kambri Scholars have the best possible university experience and are equipped to be the leaders of tomorrow.

Indigenous scholarships at ANU

Zoe Turner received the National Indigenous University Scholarship and the Brian Brogan Prize for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Students, which helped her complete her degree in actuarial studies at the College of Business and Economics at ANU in 2019.

Receiving a scholarship gave me choice.
I could choose if I wanted to work or focus on my studies as it gave me that financial freedom.
I didn't have to worry about trying to hold down two to three jobs to support myself; it was about freedom and choice.
