Why Indigenous Students In Environmental ScienceWe are passionate about environmental sustainability and creating opportunities for diversity groups within our business. As long-term supporters of Bond University and Yalari’s Indigenous scholarships, we believe education is an important tool in reducing the gap between non-Indigenous and Indigenous Australians.
We want to contribute to more diverse solutions within environmental sustainability. It is our hope that the Advance Plants Environmental Science Indigenous Scholarship will help shape future industry leaders.
