The Charlie Perkins Scholarship Trust offers two annual scholarships to talented Indigenous Australians for postgraduate study at either the University of Oxford or University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom. The scholarships cover full tuition, travel and living expenses.
The scholarships are directed at Indigenous Australians who have the potential to become leaders in their chosen fields and in their communities.
The value of each Perkins Scholarship will vary, depending on the scholarship-holder's course of study, for up to three years. It will cover full university and college fees, travel costs and an annual stipend to cover living expenses. For the 2015-16 academic year the stipend is £15,000 (approximately $AUD31,300).
Before applying, interested candidates should check the university websites to clarify exact entry requirements for their chosen course/s. The Trust encourages candidates to consider applying to both universities to increase their chances of being accepted into their program of interest.
