The Kate Mullin Education Scholarship

Kate Mullin was a passionate and visionary ESL Literacy consultant who made significant and far reaching contributions to Indigenous literacy in Western Australia. Kate worked with the Aboriginal Independent Community Schools (AICS) introducing Scaffolding Literacy to young Indigenous readers in WA with excellent results. Tragically she died in a car accident in 2008. The Kate Mullin Association was set up in 2011 by her many friends and colleagues to continue Kate’s work on improving literacy outcomes for Indigenous students. The Kate Mullin Education Scholarships are aimed at encouraging more literacy teachers in remote or rural Aboriginal communities. The Scholarship will provide a $5000 payment per year for the duration on the course (up to 4 years). The Kate Mullin Education Scholarships are aimed at assisting Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander students from regional or remote communities or students with a passion to work in regional or remote Aboriginal communities
