Abstract

The proportion of Australians to finish uni is about 25 per cent.

This figure varies dramatically from the amount of Indigenous kids who attain the same result.

Only five percent of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders gain a degree.

That's why Marnee Shay from Ilkey on the Sunshine Coast is bucking the trend... above and beyond expectations.

She's believed to be the first Aboriginal recipient of the Chancellor's Medal at the University of the Sunshine Coast, and she's now starting a PHD at QUT in Brisbane.

The ABC's Jon Coghill asked her about her studies and what the medal signifies.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
