About the programs

Scholarships, Opportunities, Achievement & Results (SOAR)

SOAR is a MADALAH program that provides secondary, tertiary and transition scholarships for Indigenous students from remote, regional and disadvantaged areas in Western Australia, and other parts of Australia.

The allocation of scholarships and the provision of extra support services to students are to improve educational disadvantage for Indigenous youth and to empower them through leadership, and other personal and professional development opportunities.

Indigenous Youth Leadership Legacy (IYLL) Project

The IYLL project provides scholarships to secondary students from regional and remote areas of Western Australia. Students on these scholarships attend one of MADALAH’s partner boarding schools and are provided support to achieve academically, participate in extra curricula activities, maintain their cultural connections, and successfully transition to higher education or training.

Acknowledgement of Country

MADALAH acknowledges and pays tribute to the Whadjuk Noongar, the Traditional Custodians of the Lands on which we work, and we pay our respects to their Elders – past, present and emerging. This acknowledgement extends to the First Peoples’ land across the state of Western Australia which is home to the many students that we support.

MADALAH recognises and values the continuity of cultural, educational and spiritual practices of First Peoples.

We wish to advise our First Peoples that this site may contain the names, images or audio-visual recordings of people who have passed.
