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."
From 2013 to 2019, the Foundation also supported bursaries at RMIT. This bursary program is now closed.
'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.'
