Former University of Melbourne
    Provost and emeritus professor of
    history Peter McPhee is so passionate
    about supporting students he set
    up his own scholarship. The Peter
    McPhee Student Awards provide cash
    support to outstanding applicants in
    the University’s Student Engagement
    Grants program, which encourages
    students to contribute to the local,
    national or international community
    by following their passions.
    “I’ve always wanted to encourage
    students to make the most of their
    university years, not only in terms of
    their own academic experiences, but
    also to think about ways in which they
    can contribute back to the communities
    from which they come.”
