Lambert McBride Perpetual Bursary

Applications for the Lambert McBride Perpetual Bursary 2017 have now closed.

The Lambert McBride Perpetual (Bursary) is named in honour of the late Lambert McBride - an Aboriginal advocate and lobbyist for Queensland Indigenous rights. The bursary was established by the Queensland Government to recognise the 40th anniversary of the 1967 Constitutional referendum. 

Mr McBride believed in the value of education for progress and encouraged Indigenous people to get a good education. This Bursary provides the opportunity for one Indigenous tertiary student studying in any field at a Queensland higher education institution to continue Mr McBride's legacy through a one-off grant of $5,000 to assist with study expenses.​
