This scholarship was established in 2002, by the student body of Evatt House, with the policy of 'from the students for the students'. This scholarship is the result of the Evatt House community wishing to provide a scholarship to encourage academic, sporting and community excellence. The funds for this scholarship have been raised through fundraising by the current residents, former residents, former board members and friends of Evatt House.

The scholarship has been named after Mark Charles who was a resident at Evatt House for six years. Mark was a keen sportsman for Evatt House, avid rugby player and mountaineer. Mark was also a true scholar, receiving the University Medal and the Evatt House Academic Award two years in succession. As an integral member of the Evatt House community we wish to honour his name, as Mark unfortunately lost his life in a mountaineering accident in 2000.

Applicable to: high achievers, accommodation, Evatt House, UON Student Living.
