The vision of Team Aspire is that every young person in the Northern Territory can access tertiary education – to always be connected, inspired and supported.

We facilitate age-appropriate opportunities for Northern Territory school students to repeatedly connect with the horizons of higher education, possible careers and life-long learning.

This program is funded by the Australian Government's Higher Education Participation and Partnerships Program (HEPPP)

Team Aspire

At CDU, we believe that university is for everyone.  Team Aspire is redesigned to support more Northern Territory students through a suite of new opportunities for prospective university students who come from low socio-economic backgrounds.

Aspire Program Graduate

I’m very thankful for the Aspire Scholarship for the last 3 years of my high school life! I’m now studying TEP (Tertiary Enabling Program) this semester at CDU.  My goal for this semester is to pass all my units, so I can get into Nursing.
