The Jimmy Pike Scholarship has run each year since it was inaugurated by Jimmy Pike’s widow, Pat Lowe, in 2010.
The scholarship is funded by the Jimmy Pike Trust. The Trust is sustained by public donations and sales and royalties from Jimmy’s artworks. Pat Lowe continues to oversee the Trust but a volunteer management committee manages financial and administrative matters, consulting with Pat when required. A part time Project Officer supports the management committee. This committee, supported by the project officer, also manages the Wyemando Harper Sisters’ Aboriginal Bequest.
