This program ran from 2013 until 2018, and provided financial support to students undertaking a graduate or Masters course at the Australian Centre for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Studies, QUT.
The George Alexander Foundation supported a scholarship and bursary program at QUT from 2013–2018, specifically for students studying at the Australian Centre for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Studies (ACPNS).
Many of the students studying at ACPNS are either returning to study, come from volunteer organisations, non-profits or the philanthropic sector, and are looking to build on their skills. These students are often the most in need of financial assistance as they attempt to balance study with significant volunteering and employment commitments.
"I have a dream to start a not-for-profit and I think this scholarship has really helped me to follow that dream."
There are no longer scholarships or bursaries available through this program.
"The George Alexander Scholarship has allowed me to continue my studies, and not only continue but move into the Masters program"
