Aurora Internships Now Open for Social Sciences’ Students

2 Mar 2015

Are you a current student or graduate of social sciences including anthropology, environmental management, history, human geography or sociology?

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 corporations
  • Government bodies
  • Community groups
  • Not-for-profit organisations.

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

Host organisations are located in the following locations:

Adelaide, Albany, Alice Springs, Bendigo, Brisbane, Broome, Cairns, Camooweal, Canberra, Cooktown, Darwin, Fitzroy Crossing, Geraldton, Kalgoorlie, Karratha, Katherine, Kununurra, Melbourne, Moree, Perth, Port Hedland, Sydney and 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. Applications open in March and August of each year.

Applications for the winter 2015 round of internships are now open.

Applications will be accepted online via the Aurora website from 9am Monday 2 March through to 5pm Friday 27 March 2015.
