Leading Edge ECU Indigenous Scholarship

Monday, 08 November 2010


The Leading Edge is an excellent program that is focussed on enhancing leadership skills and it has attracted outstanding graduate testimonials.

I am delighted to announce that due to the strength of their applications, we are increasing the support offered to reward not one, but two exceptional candidates to participate in the program.

They are both Indigenous women from ECU and are: Melanie King, ECU’s Indigenous Employment Coordinator and Alison Weston, Research Officer at ECU-based Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet.

Both Melanie and Alison are breaking new ground as this is the first year that the scholarship has been made available and that the Leading Edge program will have participation from Indigenous Australians.

It is particularly pleasing that we are able to demonstrate ECU’s commitment to supporting Indigenous Australians in pursuing their professional and personal development in this way.

I am confident that both Melanie and Alison will enjoy and be an asset to the program and wish them well in their studies.
