In 1972, George Alexander AM (1910-2008) set up an independent philanthropic foundation as a way of sharing his wealth and giving back to the community. Today, the main focus of The George Alexander Foundation is access to education for promising young students from rural and remote areas of Australia. The GAF Scholarship Program is the cornerstone of the Foundation’s grant making and in 2013 UTAS was selected to join this program and now provides a very prestigious scholarship to seven students per annum. More information on the George Alexander Foundation can be found at: www.georgealexander.org.au.
