BP Australia is offering two $ 5,000 scholarships to native student athletes | Instant News

BP Australia has offered two of the most promising native athletes of AUD5,000 (£ 2,800 / $ 3,900 / € 3,200) scholarships.

The scholarship has been offered by Australian oil and gas company BP for the third consecutive year.

This is part of BP’s ongoing partnership with UniSport Australia.

To be eligible for the scholarship, student-athletes must compete on the UniRoos team, or have participated in or plan to take part in Indigenous Nationals or UniSport Nationals.

They must also be a current student from one of the 42 member institutions of UniSport Australia and have at least one more year of further study.

Applications will be considered by representatives of UniSport Australia, The Wollotuka Institute and BP Australia.

The application deadline is 19 March and scholarship recipients will be selected before 23 April.

The recipient will then be announced and selected at the UniSport Australia Conference in Sydney on 11 May.

Stacey Markham from Australian Catholic University and Tyrone Mohamed from RMIT University were awarded scholarships last year.

BP Australia will also sponsor Indigenous People this year in Newcastle in New South Wales from June 20 to 24.

Indigenous Peoples first started in 1996 as a joint class project among 13 students enrolled in the Diploma in Aboriginal Studies at what was then called the Wollotuka School for Aboriginal Studies.

This annual event brings together student-athletes from universities across Australia.
