The Peter Beaumont Scholarship

The Peter Beaumont Scholarship

Alumnus Peter Beaumont has established a scholarship to support academically  talented students wishing to study pharmacy, but may not have the financial means to do so.

The Peter Beaumont Scholarship awards $5000 to a commencing Bachelor of Pharmacy (Honours) student in their first year of study based on academic achievement, financial need and living at least 50km outside Melbourne.

Peter comes from regional Victoria and a long line of pharmacists and other medical professionals. He graduated from the Victorian College of Pharmacy in 1957 and enjoyed a long career as a retail pharmacist, operating pharmacies in Shepparton, Aspendale and Seaford.

Peter sees supporting a scholarship as the ideal way to acknowledge the education that fostered a rewarding career. "It's a way of saying thank you to the profession and the many people who contributed to my education and to my country, which granted me a Commonwealth Scholarship".
