In 1972 George Alexander made an initial gift of $30,000 to establish the Foundation.
Today, The George Alexander Foundation provides one of Australia's most significant private scholarship and fellowship schemes, awarding nearly 100 scholarships and fellowships per year and distributing approximately $2 million annually.
Our scholarships offer access to the opportunity of education, assisting promising students to fulfil their potential. We partner with higher education institutions across Australia to offer substantial scholarships that recognise talent, leadership potential and commitment to the community.
