Charles Perkins 12th Annual Memorial Oration and Prize

25 October 2012

The Charles Perkins Memorial Prize

The Charles Perkins Memorial Prize was established in 2000 by the Koori Centre. It commemorates the life-long achievements of Dr Perkins, the first Indigenous Australian graduate of the University of Sydney. With the support of all faculties of the University, the Charlie Perkins Trust for Children & Students, and the Koori Centre, there are now three prizes awarded to Indigenous Australian students who have completed a Bachelor or Honours degree and have achieved outstanding results during their studies.

The Charles Perkins Memorial Oration

In 2001, the University of Sydney, in collaboration with the Koori Centre, launched an annual oration by a leading spokesperson within the field of Indigenous and non-Indigenous race relations. The Dr Charles Perkins AO Memorial Oration was established with the full support of the Perkins family and in acknowledgement of his tireless dedication to human rights and social justice for Indigenous Australians.
