Scholarships aim to broaden opportunities and make learning and growing a successful experience. Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and questioning (LGBTIQ) practitioners, along with Australian Indigenous practitioners, often face unique challenges in their personal lives, workplaces and academia; funding shouldn’t be one of them.
It’s more important than ever for the LGBTIQ community and for our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community to include their presence in the world of welfare, psychology and psychotherapy. By creating access to scholarships, LGBTIQ along with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals can better shape cultural progress.
For this reason, I have made two scholarship’s available each year: The SAFE-T® Queer Leaders Scholarship and the SAFE-T® Sovereign Leaders Scholarship. Read below for details and to apply.
Please Note: As I am passionate about increasing the numbers and elevating the voices of Queer & First Nations Therapists, I will be offering partial scholarships for those that apply but miss out on the full scholarship.
