Indigenous Youth Offered a Helping Hand

The Sunland Group and Bond University have joined forces to encourage indigenous youth to reach their full potential by launching the Sunland Foundation Scholarship.

The Bachelor of Laws scholarship will be awarded to a promising, indigenous year 12 student and will include full tuition fees, on-campus accommodation, meals and student activity expenses.

Sunland Managing Director Sahba Abedian is himself a Bond Alumnus and was named in the Gold Coast Bulletin’s list of the 100 most powerful Gold Coasters (2006).

The Sunland Foundation Scholarship marks the first time a Bond Alumnus has committed a full fee scholarship to the university.

Vice-Chancellor Robert Stable acknowledges the link between Bond and its Alumni as pivotal to the University’s continued success.

“It is a testament to the University that accomplished Bond Alumni such as Sahba are choosing to give back to the community,” he said.

“This scholarship is yet another example of how Bond graduates are providing a helping hand to future industry leaders and will ensure the University continues to excel.”

Indigenous students wishing to apply for the Sunland Foundation Scholarship will have demonstrated their ability through their studies and extensive involvement in extra-curricular activities.

Applications are now open on close on July 31, 2007.
