RMIT University

RMIT was chosen to provide one of the founding scholarship programs as George himself was linked to the university as both a student and lecturer in the 1940s.

RMIT was chosen for one of the founding scholarship programs as George himself had been a student and lecturer at RMIT in the 1940s. The George Alexander Foundation Scholarship Program awarded its first scholarships in 2002.

Students who apply for The George Alexander Foundation Scholarship must be moving in to the second year of their undergraduate degree at RMIT University, or the first year of a two year diploma at RMIT TAFE. 

"This scholarship has changed my life. University has gone from something to be stressed about, to something I can immerse myself in and enjoy."

Since 2013, the Foundation has also supported bursaries at RMIT. Bursaries are available to students in any undergraduate degree who can demonstrate excellence in their studies and a level of need. Priority is given to either students with placement requirements or students in the design faculties who have high costs related to materials.

'Being a George Alexander Foundation scholar has shown me that there are not limitation on what I can achieve and there there will always be help available for those who are willing to apply themselves. My desire to repay this faith by giving back to my community is a huge driving factor for me.'

See the RMIT website for further information on The George Alexander Foundation scholarships and bursaries.
