Four Charles Darwin University students have received scholarships as part of the Northern Territory Government Disability Scholarship Program.

The annual scholarships, valued at up to $2500 each, aim to drive excellence in the disability sector by assisting students to develop their skills through study and practical experience.

Head of CDU’s School of Health Professor Rose McEldowney said the scholarships would help strengthen and enhance the region’s vital disability services industry.

Students in this year’s Northern Territory Government Disability Scholarship Program will study in areas such as social work, community services, disability or humanitarian and community studies.

The program is an opportunity for people working in the disability service sector to boost their skills and improve their career opportunities. It aims to support the sector to maintain best practice and innovation in the provision of services for people with a disability in the NT.
