Our Programs

The George Alexander Foundation works with selected organisations to offer scholarships and fellowships.

The George Alexander Foundation scholarships and fellowships are offered through our Scholarship and Fellowship Program partners.

The George Alexander Foundation annually awards close to 100 scholarships and fellowships through these partnerships.

The scholarships and fellowships recognise talent, leadership potential, and commitment to the community, supporting driven individuals to fulfill their potential and empower their ongoing contributions to the broader community.

The George Alexander Foundation does not accept unsolicited grant applications and cannot fund individuals. The Foundation's scholarships and fellowships are offered through our program partnerships with organisations, primarily universities, TAFEs and other educational institutions.

To be eligible for funding, these organisations must have Deductible Gift Recipient (Item 1) status and Tax Concession Charity (TCC) status.
