Chancellor launches alumni philanthropy campaign

Monash Chancellor Dr Alan Finkel AM is calling on his fellow Monash alumni to participate in the University’s first online alumni philanthropy campaign launched on Wednesday 2 June. The Monash+ alumni philanthropy campaign is focused on student support. 

“I believe it is vital we give back to the University that was the foundation of our careers,” said Dr Finkel.  “Monash students have amazing potential. The young people who are currently studying at Monash will shape the future of Australia and the world. Your financial support will help them to achieve their potential.”

With his wife, alumna Dr Elizabeth Finkel, Alan Finkel has philanthropically supported Monash research into global health, sustainability, and child abuse prevention, as well as scholarships for engineering PhD students.

In the alumni philanthropy campaign, each faculty has chosen one priority initiative that will help students lead, achieve and succeed.   The Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences’ priority is its Scholars Bursary.

The Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences Scholars Bursary will help students who might otherwise not be able to afford to start, or to complete, their education.  It will provide bursaries for domestic and international students, and emergency funds for students facing hardship.

To participate, visit the alumni philanthropy website.
