Aurora Internship Program – Summer 2016/2017

The Aurora Internship Program continues to place law, anthropology and other social science (namely archaeology, cultural heritage, environmental management, human geography, history and sociology) students and graduates from Australian universities at Native Title Representative Bodies (NTRBs), Prescribed Bodies Corporates (PBCs) and at other organisations involved in policy development, research and social justice, all working to support the broader Indigenous sector Australia-wide. The Program introduces candidates to career opportunities in native title and the Indigenous sector and at the same time provides assistance to under-resourced and over-worked organisations. 

The Program places Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous students and graduates (including mature aged) in full-time unpaid 4 to 6 week internships, at over 120 organisations Australia-wide, all with an Indigenous focus, working in the area of:

  • Native title
  • Land rights
  • Policy development
  • Advocacy
  • Social justice
  • Social welfare
  • Human rights
  • Community development
  • Environmental policy.
