About Aurora Internships

Current students and graduates of Social Sciences, particularly students from Anthropology, Environmental Management, History, Human Geography and Sociology are encouraged to apply for the Aurora Internship Program.

The Aurora Internship Program provides opportunities to work in native title, policy development, research and social justice, all with an Indigenous focus.

Interns will have the opportunity to work with anthropology and research staff at a host organisation including:

• Native Title Representative Bodies (NTRBs)

• Prescribed Bodies Corporate (PBCs)

• Indigenous organisations

• Government bodies

• Community groups

• Policy organisations

Internships provide an excellent opportunity for students and graduates to consider careers in these fields, while also providing additional resources to organisations in need of assistance.

Host organisations are located in the following locations:

Adelaide, Albany, Alice Springs, Armidale, Bendigo, Brisbane, Broome, Broken Hill, Cairns, Camooweal, Canberra, Cooktown, Darwin, Fitzroy Crossing, Geraldton, Horsham, Kalgoorlie, Karratha, Katherine, Kununurra, Lismore, Melbourne, Moree, Newcastle, Nhulunbuy, Perth, Port Hedland, Sydney, Thursday Island, Umuwa, Wadeye and Wollongong.


There are two intakes for interns annually, during the summer and winter university breaks, for five to six weeks, with some flexibility for graduates. It is preferable for applicants to be in their final year of study or have graduated.

Applications open in March and August of each year.

Applications for the summer 2017/18 round of internships will be accepted online via the Aurora website between 9am Monday 31 July through to 5pm Friday 25 August 2017.
