    Each year the Charlie Perkins Scholarship Trust offers two Scholarships for Indigenous postgraduates to study for up to three years at either Cambridge or Oxford universities.

    To be considered for the Scholarship, applicants must have applied for a course at Cambridge and/or Oxford.  Applicants must also submit:

    • a cover letter
    • a curriculum vitae
    • an official transcript of university results
    • confirmation of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent
    • details for two academic referees (email and telephone numbers).

    Please note that applications will close at 5pm AEST on Thursday 31 October 2013.  The Charlie Perkins Scholarships will only be awarded to students who are accepted to study at either Cambridge or Oxford.  In most instances, this will require a First Class Honours degree or a very strong Second Class Honours degree.
