Kath Byer Indigenous Scholarship
Achieving Potential Scholarship for Distinction
Indigenous students who aspire to study at Monash University are invited to apply for the Kath Byer Indigenous Scholarship. The scholarship is established in memory of the late Kath Byer OAM, fondly remembered as the licensee of the Notting Hill Pub (‘The Nott’).
Since 1930, the pub has been frequented by many a Monash student and staff and continues to play a key role in the social culture at Monash.
The family of the late Kath Byer has generously decided to honour her memory by establishing the Kath Byer Indigenous Scholarship. Recipients of the scholarship will receive up to $24,000 with preference given to applicants who have a low income.
