Bursary Education Encouragement Program (BEEP) for Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Students

The College is offering Bursary Educational Encouragement Program (BEEP) because of its clearly articulated commitment to working with Aboriginal people and to provide assistance to help further the career opportunities for young Aboriginal people.

The Bursary Educational Encouragement Program at Ƶ is funded by the College. The College, therefore, makes a very real and very significant contribution to assisting Aboriginal families with the education of their children.

A review is conducted every semester for each recipient. The value of the bursary is dependent upon the student’s family financial circumstances. All students in the program must apply for Abstudy.

We encourage you to contact our Aboriginal Students Coordinator by email at Ƶ.AES@aranmore.wa.edu.au or phone the College on 08 9201 5200 before commencing the application process. For further information on the Aboriginal Students Program, please call 08 9201 5200.

Please note that there may be waiting lists, therefore families are encouraged to apply early.
