Our story

Our Story

MADALAH Limited is a not-for-profit organisation that offers Secondary and Tertiary education scholarships for Indigenous students from remote and regional communities to West Australia’s leading boarding schools and Australian universities.

We believe education is the key to generational change and opportunity, and we are committed to making a difference in the lives of our participants, their families and communities. ‘Making A Difference And Looking Ahead’ is what our name stands for, and what we empower our students and participants to do.

Since 2009, MADALAH Limited has provided Indigenous young people from remote and regional communities the opportunity for a quality education, and employment-related training. MADALAH Limited is governed by a Board and our staff in Perth, manage the programs and provide support to the students and participants, and their families.

We have supported hundreds of Indigenous young people from around Australia during their education and training journey, and we continue to support them after they graduate. Our mission is to empower youth to achieve excellence in life through education and training.

About our Scholarship Programs

MADALAH Limited provides scholarships through the Indigenous Youth Leadership Legacy Program and the Scholarships, Opportunities, Achievements, Results Program, for students wishing to attend our partner secondary schools in Western Australia and universities around Australia.  In addition to helping Indigenous students achieve their educational aspirations, MADALAH supports the development of a pool of positive role models and future leaders who will inspire others and illustrate the successes that can be achieved through education. The scholarship programs are funded by the National Indigenous Australians Agency.

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.
