Mangayin Encouraging Excellence Youth Scholarship
Scholarships are available to young Yawuru people, aged 12 – 30 years, who demonstrate leadership, excellence in their work or training, and who are engaged with the community. Through this fund, Nyamba Buru Yawuru supports youth with their goals and fosters their growth for future success in their chosen area of work or training. This fund is made possible by the actions of Yawuru elders, past and present, who fought for our Common Law legal rights and interests.
Yawuru encourages community and corporate support for our fund and if you would like to help NBY to support our emerging leaders, please see our Mangayin Encouraging Excellence Scholarship Sponsorship Pack
