General Sir John Monash Foundation

Australia’s own prestigious postgraduate scholarship program.

Each year General Sir John Monash Scholarships are awarded to outstanding graduates from Australian universities, who have demonstrated leadership skills, and have a vision for a better Australia. The Scholarship enables them to undertake Masters or Doctoral degrees at the world’s best universities, and bring home that knowledge.

Scholars are selected for their intellect, character, and their likely benefit to the Australian community, through a rigorous application and interview process.

Nearly one hundred scholars have been selected over the past decade and many are already making a significant contribution to Australian society, in the fields of medicine, economics, law, engineering and science, politics and many others.

The Origin Foundation is a long-term partner of the General Sir John Monash Foundation, funding scholarships for 12 years in the area of Sustainability and Engineering.

Our Foundation is proud to support support these high achievers because of their potential to contribute to Australia’s future.

Sean Barrett, Head of the Origin Foundation said: "The General Sir John Monash Foundation has produced an alumni of scholars who are making significant and valuable contributions to the community in a broad range of areas, like human rights, the environment, health and natural disasters. Most of the scholars come back and work in Australia, so their talents flow back into the community.”
