A difference worth making
“Only education can deliver the outcomes needed for an equitable society. Here we have a strategy which is making a real impact. Shalom Gamarada is showing what Indigenous students and graduates can achieve when they are given the chance.”
– David Gonski. The Gonski Foundation
“We are proud to be associated with such a remarkable program. It provides accommodation on campus with the support, the tuition, the “family” and the everyday essentials that make life at university possible and so rewarding. The success of the Shalom Gamarada Scholarship recipients must inspire their family and friends to pursue higher education which, over time, will help reduce Indigenous disadvantage.”
– Alan Joffe and Friends Consortium
“Not many scholarships work so effectively at so many levels. Apart from rewarding the hard-working student, this program benefits the university, the Indigenous community and society as a whole. It also brings great pride and satisfaction to the scholarship providers.”
– Ralph Pliner, Baker & McKenzie and Friends
