Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander PhD Scholarship – Ngarrngga Project
The Ngarrngga Project aims to empower educators to teach Australian students about the depth and wealth of First Nations peoples’ histories, cultures and contributions to Australia. The Project is led by the Melbourne Graduate School of Education (MGSE) in partnership with the University of Melbourne’s Indigenous Studies Unit and the Indigenous Knowledge Institute. The next phase of the project is to deliver teacher-ready curriculum plans and resources for educators nationally, appropriately customized for year level and against national, state and territory curriculum guidelines. The project will be a vehicle for delivering long-term systemic change by inspiring future generations to be curious about Indigenous culture, and to embrace Indigenous Australians and the richness they contribute to Australia and our region.
