Charlie Perkins Scholarships
The Charlie Perkins Scholarships were launched in 2009 in memory of leader and activist Dr Charlie Perkins - the first Aboriginal man to graduate from university. With the assistance of the University of Oxford, the Charlie Perkins Trust established the scholarships to support two talented Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Australians each year to undertake postgraduate study at the University of Oxford. In 2011, with support from the Cambridge Commonwealth, European & International Trust, the Scholarships also became available for study at the University of Cambridge.
