Congratulations to University of Queensland student Beth Madsen, who received a Fulbright Scholarship to study in Alaska for six months. 

A PhD Candidate in UQ’s School of Education, Ms Madsen will use this scholarship to look at funding as a form of policy enactment within Indigenous education.

With a keen interest in pre-service teacher education, she will explore ways to work with pre-service teachers to embed Indigenous perspectives within the curriculum.

She will study at both Alaska Pacific University and University of Alaska Anchorage, who offer an entire curriculum across all faculties that is ‘infused’ with Native Alaskan knowledge.
