"I have the honour of presenting the John Koowarta Reconciliation Scholarship to its 2024 recipient.

The John Koowarta Scholarship is a national scholarship dedicated to helping Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander law students achieve their ambition of becoming a lawyer. It was established in 1994 the Honourable Robert Tickner, then Minister For Aboriginal Affairs, with a $200,000 grant for the Commonwealth Government, in memory of John Koowarta, who passed away in 1991. John Koowarta was a catalyst for change."
