Charles Perkins scholarship

Congratulations to IAV member and Indigenous Architecture student Sarah Lynn Rees for receiving a Charles Perkins scholarship.

Sarah will start post-graduate studies in architecture and urban design at Cambridge University later this year.

A descendant of Dolly Dalrymple and the Plangermaireener people in Tasmania, she grew up in Hobart before achieving first-class honours in a Bachelor of Environments, majoring in architecture, at the University of Melbourne.

The 23-year-old now works for Melbourne’s Jackson Clements Burrows Architects and was thrilled to be named a recipient.

“My research proposal was on the concept of nomadic housing and Indigenous culture,” Sarah said.
