A scholarship for trans participants in the Master of Narrative Therapy and Community Work

In many different parts of the world, the rights of LGBTQIA+ people are debated and contested. Despite the legalisation of same-sex marriage and bans to harmful conversion practices in some locations, it is evident that there are ongoing hurdles facing the LGBTQIA+ community in both their personal and professional lives, especially transgender people. We also acknowledge that these hurdles often make higher education inaccessible for many trans folks.

We want to focus on the achievements and celebrate the fantastic work that trans folks contribute to narrative practice and community work, and encourage further contributions.

It is for this reason that Dulwich Centre Foundation is offering a scholarship for the Master of Narrative Therapy and Community Work, aimed at supporting transgender participants of the program.

Each year a scholarship of $3000 will be awarded to a transgender participant of the program who has indicated they would like to receive the fund. In addition, alongside the funds, recipients of this scholarship will receive supervision sessions with a Dulwich Centre Faculty member who has significant experience in narrative practice through a trans lens.

The funds will be awarded directly to the participant and can be spent on anything that will assist their education journey.
