The Foundation is preparing for an exciting year ahead with this year being the 20th anniversary of the first cohort of John Monash Scholarships being awarded.
Acknowledging the maturity and growth that comes with such a timestamp, this anniversary creates the occasion to celebrate the Foundations legacy and contributions of Scholars to the communities they serve, and gives us the opportunity to be forward thinking, and consider what new opportunities and solutions will be in our future. The milestone of the Foundation reaching 20 years of awarding Scholarships has been awarded the ambitious goal of raising $20 million for 20 years of impact.
Join us in supporting the future leaders of Australia.
The John Monash Scholarship is gifted in the spirit of General Sir John Monash, a remarkable Australian who believed that education is not given for individual benefit, but for the higher duties of citizens who seek to advance society.
The 2024 John Monash Scholarship applications will open in May 2023.

The office of the General Sir John Monash Foundation sits on Wurundjeri country and we warmly acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we are privileged to have our working base and pay our respects to the Wurundjeri elders past and present . We would also like to acknowledge and pay our respects to all the traditional custodians of this vast continent, on whose lands our Scholars have been nurtured, which our supporters, board members and staff call home, and where, as a national organisation, we often gather.
