2020 Monash Scholars events and engagement opportunities

Events are a pivotal and exciting part of engaging with students in our program.  Scholars will be formally invited via email to the events they are eligible to attend.

A key event that Scholars from all year levels are encouraged to attend is Open Day. How that will look in 2020 is still being decided.

We also keep in touch via our Scholars Facebook cohort groups.  For more details of how to join your cohort group, email monashscholars@monash.edu .
