Applications for the 2017 Pearl Duncan Teaching Scholarships are now closed.
The Pearl Duncan Teaching Scholarships were developed by the department to assist aspiring teachers who identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander to complete an initial preservice teacher education program and make a difference in education.
The department realises the importance of having a quality teaching workforce that is reflective of the diversity of students attending Queensland state schools. This is especially significant for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community where teachers are role models for younger generations.
The scholarships are named in honour of Pearl Duncan, an Aboriginal educator who has dedicated her life to improving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander participation in education.
