Collegian former winner, Jennifer Kerr (Class of 2017)
Jennifer Kerr (Class of 2017) is a previous recipient of a prestigious residential Charles Hawker Scholarship. Currently studying a combined Bachelor of Politics, Philosophy & Economics/Bachelor of Arts, Jennifer hopes to one day become ‘a leader in developing government policy’. 

She said ‘the scholarship will be of vast benefit in supporting my tertiary studies. It has inspired me to look for ways to participate and contribute to the local community and Australia following in the footsteps of Charles Hawker. The scholarship enables me to live on campus at ANU, allowing me to be more involved with the university and college community. My college also has many third-year and post-graduate students that can provide academic mentoring and support. More broadly the scholarship assists me with networking and working towards further opportunities in the future’.
