Information for parents: Schools are invited to nominate students who would benefit from participating in the UOW Indigenous Summer Camp. We understand that school results alone are not always a true measure of potential, so we ask schools to consider students who are:

  • Active in their community

  • Considering university

  • Committed to their studies

Participants may wish to bring a small amount of spending money if desired.
