Aurora Education Foundation

Who are we?
We know that if Indigenous students see themselves in the design of the education system, they will be more likely to resonate with it, engage with it, take ownership of it and succeed within it.
Leila Smith, Aurora Chief Executive Officer
Aurora Education Foundation
The Aurora Education Foundation is an Indigenous organisation that supports Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to realise their full education and employment potential – whether it is completing Year 12 or achieving a DPhil from Oxford. Through our interconnected programs and pathways, we walk with students from high school through to university and the workplace, redefining Indigenous educational and employment success
What are we doing?

What works in Indigenous education?

Aurora: Redefining Indigenous Success in Education (RISE)

The extensive data that results from RISE will establish a clear link between specific types of support and Indigenous student outcomes. This will be fundamental to improving educational outcomes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, building a pipeline of Indigenous leaders, and creating a platform for Indigenous-led advocacy and reform.
