Graham Sherry OAM Scholarship

About the Graham Sherry OAM Scholarship

Graham Sherry

The Graham Sherry OAM Scholarship is available annually to a young female and male from refugee and asylum seeker backgrounds to help them complete their studies at university or TAFE.

Applications for the scholarship open in July and close in September each year.

The bursaries celebrate the contribution the former Chair of migrant and refugee settlement agency AMES Australia, Graham Sherry OAM, made to the refugee sector during his 12 year tenure. 

Mr Sherry joined AMES Australia in 2004 after a distinguished legal and business career. In his time as Chair, AMES Australia developed as an organisation fostering new ideas, new ways of working and new visions for the future.

Mr Sherry, who stood down as Chair in 2016 has said he is proud to be associated with the scholarships.

Scholarship Applications have closed for study in 2020.
