Mathew Peck Travelling Scholarship

Help our students help the world

This annual scholarship pays $4,000 toward the airfare and accommodation costs of a third- or fourth-year pharmacy or pharmacy and commerce student to work on an international aid program, preferably in the Asia Pacific region.

Established in 2003, the scholarship honours Mathew Peck, a Bachelor of Pharmacy student who died tragically while travelling in South America after completing his first year of study. Mathew was committed to addressing international health issues by using pharmacy to improve people's lives.
