Chris and Kerryn Marks Travel Grant

Overview

 Each year the ANU College of Law may offer a number of awards known as the Chris and Kerryn Marks Travel Grant.
The objective of this award is to support ANU College of Law students undertaking an internship with the Kimberley Community Legal Services (KCLS) with the costs of visiting the Kimberley in Western Australia, for the purpose of spending time with the KCLS staff and the community they serve. It is anticipated that this travel will increase opportunity for ANU students, regardless of their financial means, and further enrich their student experience, cultural competence and learning outcomes as they develop a greater understanding of justice and the legal system, as it impacts on Aboriginal peoples in the Kimberley. 
Funding for this award has been provided by Chris and Kerryn Marks.
