Each scholarship is awarded to 'Indigenous Australians who have enrolled or are enrolling in the course for the degree of Master of Teaching (Early Childhood or Early Years)...with a preference for female students'. 'If no such eligible candidates exist in any given year, or where sufficient funds allow, then the fund may also support research involving Indigenous children and families in the field of early childhood education'.
