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. Once a Scholar has registered for an event, their nominated parent/guardian will be sent a permission form via Operoo a week before the event to approve their child's attendance.

A key event that Scholars from all year levels are encouraged to attend is Open Day. In 2020, this will take place as a virtual event.

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 .
