The Presentation Ceremony was held at the Shrine of Remembrance in Melbourne on 25 February 2019. In an event that welcomed 150 guests including Foundation supporters, friends, Scholar alumni and family, the 2019 John Monash Scholars were formally presented with their John Monash Scholarship certificates by His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd), Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia. As 2019 marks the final year of his term as the Governor-General, the Foundation also thanked His Excellency for his many years as the Patron-in-Chief of the Foundation.
The Scholars also participated in valuable workshops covering topics such as self-care, resilience and leadership, that will equip them well for their studies. We wish these fine John Monash Scholars all the best and look forward to following their many achievements during their studies abroad!
