Beyond the usual scholarship narrative, About Love Scholarship is a symbol of hope in the field of educational chances. The goal of this scholarship is to honor and reward people who, in the face of adversity, exemplify love in all that they do.
In general, scholarships have always been a change-maker, providing opportunities for people who want to pursue higher education. Love Scholarship expands on this idea by bringing compassion and love into the application process.
About Love Scholarship
The objective About Love Scholarship is to help a student who is dedicated, has high ethics, is resilient, has met roadblocks during their life and will be able to move forward and shine as a result of being awarded the Love Scholarship. The Love scholarships are a flagship scholarship program at ANU, promoting and supporting equity and diversity at the University.
Funding for this award has been provided by the late Emeritus Professor John Love. Professor Love established the Love Scholarship during his lifetime, with the first scholarships awarded in 2015. Following his death, Professor Love endowed the scholarships in perpetuity with a generous bequest to ANU.
