Our Mission / Objective

Our objective is to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to become leaders in their field and in the broader community.

By providing scholarships to high-achieving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians to study at some of the world’s top universities, we are recognising the huge legacy of Indigenous achievement, and aiding the development of tomorrow’s greatest leadership talent.

Our Services

The Charlie Perkins Scholarships were launched in 2009 in memory of leader and activist Dr Charlie Perkins AO – the first Aboriginal man to graduate from university.

With the assistance of the University of Oxford and the Cambridge Commonwealth, European & International Trust, the Charlie Perkins Scholarship Trust offers annual Scholarships to undertake postgraduate study at the University of Oxford or the University of Cambridge to talented Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander students.

By giving students the opportunity to gain unique and vital skills, knowledge and experience at world-class institutions, the Trust is fortifying the strength of Indigenous leadership and encouraging aspirations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.

 

Our Beneficiaries

Charlie Perkins Scholarships support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to become leaders, which in turn benefits us all.

With the assistance of the University of Oxford and the Cambridge Commonwealth, European & International Trust, the Charlie Perkins Scholarship Trust offers annual Scholarships to undertake postgraduate study at the University of Oxford or the University of Cambridge to talented Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander students.
