Lambert McBride Perpetual Bursary
The Lambert McBride Perpetual Education Bursary was established by the McBride family in honour
of their father Mr Lambert McBride, an Aboriginal advocate and lobbyist for Queensland Indigenous
rights. He played an important role in supporting the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community
and reconciliation, and this award recognises his legacy.
The Bursary is open to all students of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage entering their
second or third year of tertiary study, and provides some financial assistance for tertiary expenses.
