Stuart Simson Grant

The Stuart Simson Grant was established in 1975 from a bequest by the late Stuart Ormsby Simson, who directed that the income be used to assist in paying the fees of eligible first-year male students residing in one of the university Halls of Residences.

If you are a high-achieving male student intending to pursue an undergraduate degree at Monash, you may be eligible for this scholarship. Selection is based on academic achievement and you must be intending to reside at Monash Residential Services on the Clayton campus or Mannix College.
