Peter Kenyon Memorial Postgraduate Scholarship
Peter Kenyon was a well-known and passionate economist, educator, media commentator and social justice advocate. He believed strongly in the value of tertiary education. Prior to Peter’s passing in February 2012 he requested a scholarship be established in his memory, to help disadvantaged postgraduate students complete their higher degree.
The 2015 Peter Kenyon Memorial Postgraduate Scholarship was valued at $30,000 and was awarded for a period of 12 months.
The Economic Society of Australia administered the scholarship on behalf of Peter Kenyon’s widow, Jan Wright.
