Monash students, staff and alumni are coming together to support asylum seeker and refugee students studying at Monash by contributing to the Asylum Seeker Scholarship fund.

We raised $39,000 as part of the Run Melbourne event in July, and our goal is to reach $50,000 during the Melbourne Marathon festival. With your help, we can make this happen!

Monash University is proudly supporting this initiative and are offering a $50 Coles Myer gift card when participants raise over $150 for the cause. More information will be sent out to participants after they have registered.

Check our fundraising progress or donate here!
