The KARI Scholarship program is an education-based initiative for Aboriginal senior high school students studying across the western, south-western and greater Sydney regions.

This initiative is delivered in partnership with individual high schools and provides all successful applicants with financial assistance to purchase school-related items. This is designed to ease the costs of studying and to provide career advice and support opportunities for Aboriginal students to complete their Higher School Certificate.

The KARI/Optus Scholarship offers financial assistance as well support and mentoring. The Scholarship covers the cost of study such as buying uniforms, text books, stationary, school fees, excursions and more.

KARI/Optus Scholarship students will also have access to:

  • Mentoring
  • Education Assistance
  • Links to future employment opportunities
  • Access to exclusive workshops hosted by the Optus team
