In recognition of the centenary in 1975 of the death of C.J. Latrobe, the Premier of Victoria invited a Centenary Commemoration Committee to organise suitable commemorative functions and events. The Committee proposed that a perpetual scholarship in public administration be made available to applicants from the Victorian Public Service and Victorian Statutory Authorities, to undertake research in particular aspects of that wide ranging subject.
The work of the C.J. Latrobe Study Award Committee was the selection of an applicant for the Study Award.
The secretarial support was provided by the Premiers Department, which consisted of receiving applications, seeking referees reports, and duplicating material for its members.
The administration of the scholarship was taken over by the Public Service Board in 1983.
