2022 Midyear Annual Appeal

Funding Graduate House Residential Scholarships

2022 marks sixty years since the first terraces of Graduate House was opened as a residential college. During these 60 years our graduate residents have come from all over Australia and overseas. We have worked tirelessly to offer them a quality residential experience to enhance and support their university postgraduate studies. The contributions many of our residents have made to our college, to their university, and to their future careers have been immense. We at Graduate House are proud that we have played a role in the quality of this experience.

Throughout the past 60 years numerous students have expressed their indebtedness for the financial assistance Graduate House provided to support their postgraduate study and residential experience. Our confidence in the future is such that in celebrating the 60th anniversary of Graduate House, we want to assist more graduates to have a life-changing experience by offering for the first time full or part residential scholarships.

We know that for many students the cost of college residency is prohibitive – not surprisingly, many extremely worthy students who have great potential to contribute fully and significantly to college life, are unable to afford this cost. We want to address this.

 

Please contribute towards us establishing full or part-residency scholarships in this 60th Jubilee year

  • Our Midyear Annual Appeal is focusing on providing full or part-residency scholarships.

  • Full residency costs approximately $25,000 a year.

  • If 10 people each contribute $500 we could offer a student $5,000 towards their residential fees.

  • If 20 people each contribute $500 we could offer a student $10,000.

  • If 10 people each contribute $1,000 we could offer a student $10,000.

  • And if 25 people each contribute $1,000 we could offer a student a full Residential Scholarship of $25,000.

  • Perhaps you are in a position to fully fund a named residential scholarship of $25,000 in honour of (or in memory of) someone special. This could be a one-off donation – or the basis for ongoing support.

  • We are inviting Members and Corporates to become involved in this new initiative. All monies contributed to our 60th Year Jubilee Residential Scholarship Annual Appeal will provide residential support for graduate students – none of it will be used for ongoing costs of The Graduate Union or Graduate House.

  • Please join us in enriching the graduate university experience for special and potential Graduate House residents.

  • If you are interested in establishing a named Full Residency Scholarship, please contact The President of The Graduate Union, the Hon Diana Bryant AO QC, or Chair of Council, Mr Vincent Mirabelli, through Graduate House (03) 9347 3428.

You can also download an editable pdf from HERE to complete and send back as an attachment, or to print and send back by post.
