The Aspire Program seeks students who are passionate, curious, willing to step outside their comfort zone, show potential for or would benefit from continued education including University, a team player, and good school attendance (>80%).  The vision of the Aspire Program is that every young person in the Northern Territory can access tertiary education – to always be connected, inspired and supported.  The Program facilitates age-appropriate opportunities for NT school students to repeatedly connect with the horizons of higher education, possible careers and life-long learning.
