The Michelle Foster  
Walu Scholarship

About the Walu Scholarship

Sponsored by Winangay Resources Inc.

The purpose of the Walu Scholarship is to support young people aged between 17-21 to continue their education pathway of higher learning.

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, one in nine (11.5%) of people aged 18-24 years were attending university or other higher education institutions at the time of the 2021 Census, up for 8.3% in 2011.

We believe it is important to support young people to achieve their education goals.

This Scholarship is dedicated to Michelle Foster and her tireless efforts in keeping our kids safe, home with family, entrenched in culture and connected on country.
