The Jillian Weaven Human Resources Scholarship is designed to honour the legacy of Jillian Weaven, a Wiradjuri woman passionate about education, creating career pathways for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the advancement of women.
Jillian’s will and determination for change and her passion and advocacy in the rights of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people was a driver in her role at RMIT.
The scholarship will encourage and assist postgraduate students in Human Resources-related disciplines to complete their studies, obtain a mentor within RMIT and gain employment experience at RMIT. The scheme provides scholarships for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander women only studying at the postgraduate level in Human Resources at RMIT.
The scholarship has been established as a tribute to the late Jillian Weaven’s outstanding contribution to First Nations people at RMIT, her role in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Employment Committee and her commitment to supporting the growth and development of women at RMIT in her role as Senior People Business Partner.
It is envisaged that the scholarship will also allow RMIT to build talent for the future within the People team.
The scholarship application process is highly competitive with a limited number of scholarships available. Unfortunately, not all eligible applicants will receive one.
Only successful candidates will be notified via email to their RMIT student account.
