W John Collins Scholarship
Established in 2015 by Dr Matt Collins QC (PhD 2000) and his partner, Leonard Vary (BCo 1985, LLB 1985) in honour of Dr Collins’ father, John Collins. Born in England in 1942 in impoverished circumstances, and raised mostly in the United States, John Collins moved to Australia in 1968, where he became a secondary school teacher. John understood the transformative power of education and, with his wife Robyn, also a teacher, made sacrifices that enabled Dr Collins to become the first in his family to obtain a law degree. Dr Collins went on to obtain his PhD at Melbourne Law School, where he is currently a senior fellow.
