Monash University and Gandel Philanthropy have partnered to support the next generation of Indigenous change agents, as part of the largest philanthropic fundraising campaigns in the history of the university.

The scholarship, which will see financial support given to two Indigenous students each year at Monash, was established in honour of Aboriginal elder and activist William Cooper, who forged a connection between Indigenous Australians and the Jewish community through a protest against the atrocities committed against Jewish people in Nazi Germany.  

John Gandel said the scholarship would ensure the spirit and actions of Cooper lived on.
