The Indigenous Youth Leadership Program (IYLP) offers scholarships and leadership opportunities to young Indigenous Australians. The IYLP is offered in conjunction with the Indigenous Education at ϲ̳ (IE@P) program.

The Indigenous Youth Leadership Program

Working in partnership with ϲ̳, the IYLP is run by The Smith Family, with funding support through the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet. The Government-funded program aims to close the gaps in Indigenous educational disadvantage by creating greater access to additional education choice for Indigenous students, particularly those from remote and very remote areas of the country.

In addition to helping Indigenous students achieve their educational aspirations, the IYLP supports the development of positive role models and leaders to inspire other Indigenous students.

Scholarships through the IYLP are currently fully allocated.

For further information about ϲ̳'s IE@P program please read Indigenous Education.
