Susan Campbell Equity Scholarship

Susan Campbell Equity Scholarship

Achieving Potential Scholarship for Distinction

Susan Campbell joined Monash in 1980 and quickly became one of the law faculty’s most respected and loved teachers. Throughout her career, she strived to increase the access of students from disadvantaged backgrounds to a legal education.

In memory of Sue, this scholarship rewards high-achieving students who wish to commence an undergraduate law degree at Monash, and who would otherwise not be able to afford it. Preference will be given to Indigenous Australians or students who are from a regional or remote area.
