The GAF Scholarship Program at Griffith University is the Foundation's oldest and the one program developed directly by George himself.
The GAF Scholarship Program was established at Griffith University in 2002. It was one of the first scholarship programs the Foundation established (together with RMIT). Not only was it one of the first scholarship programs for the Foundation but it was also developed directly by George himself with support from the Foundation. The program is currently the Foundation's largest single commitment with over 100 students sharing in scholarships totalling $2.3 million since 2002.
"The scholarship encourages me to achieve more, simply because I know that someone, external from my group of friends and family, values me and believes in me."
The George Alexander Foundation Scholarships are awarded to students residing at one of Griffith University's Residential Colleges who can demonstrate academic merit, commitment to their studies, community involvement and leadership. The scholarships are open to students studying at the Nathan, Gold Coast or Mt Gravatt campuses.
The current GAF Scholarship Program supports eight scholarships each valued at $22,500 with awards committed until 2017.
"At Griffith University, the GAF Scholar community inspires each other, both through excellence in their individual fields and community spirit."
