Roberta Sykes Scholarship
In 2009, with the assistance of the University of Oxford, the Charlie Perkins Trust established annual Charlie Perkins Scholarships to provide two talented Indigenous Australians each year with the opportunity to undertake postgraduate study at the University of Oxford from 2010. <brIn 2011, with support from the Cambridge Commonwealth Trust and Cambridge Australia Scholarships, the Scholarships also became available for study at the University of Cambridge. These postgraduate Scholarships are particularly directed towards Indigenous Australians who have the potential to become leaders in their field of study and in their communities. A panel of prominent Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians, together with a representative of the British Government and Cambridge Australia Scholarships, select the Charlie Perkins Scholars each year.
