About the Dr Charles Perkins AO Annual 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.

Dr Charles Perkins AO Memorial Prize

This 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 3 prizes awarded to Indigenous Australian students who have completed a Bachelor or Honours degree and have achieved outstanding results during their studies.
