The family and friends of Leo Cooper-White, together with the UTAS Foundation, are seeking support for the Leo Cooper-White Memorial Scholarship Appeal which will establish a scholarship at the University of Tasmania’s School of Visual and Performing Arts (SVPA). Leo was a third year student at the UTAS School of Visual and Performing Arts. On 18 March 2011, Leo’s life was cut short in a tragic accident. We are aiming to raise $30,000 which the UTAS Foundation has agreed to match dollar for dollar for a total of $60,000, to endow an annual scholarship in Leo’s name.
No early alumnus of the UTAS School of Medicine needs an introduction to Arthur Cobbold. From 1964, when he arrived as Foundation Professor of Physiology, to his retirement 21 years later – with 13 of those years as Dean of Medicine – he very much shaped the School and the lives of many of those in it.
It is a fitting memorial to the late Professor Cobbold that an annual lecture on contemporary medical issues will again influence medical thinking in Tasmania and that the support to endow this lecture in perpetuity will come from those who were themselves most closely influenced by his work and mentorship.
No matter the size of your gift, supporting the Annual Appeal has an immediate and positive impact, creating life-changing experiences that last students a lifetime.
Through the Annual Appeal you can support the Annual Appeal Scholarships and the Development Fund. Alternatively, you can designate your gift to a program, faculty or appeal that matters most to you such as the Save the Tasmanian Devil Appeal, the Old Hobartian Centenary Scholarship, the Arthur Cobbold Memorial Lecture Appeal or the faculty where you studied.
Whatever you choose to support, your contribution will make a life-changing impact on the current and future students of UTAS.
2013 marks the centenary of the founding of Hobart High School and its successor institutions, Hobart Matriculation College and Hobart College. To celebrate the significant milestone in educational attainment for Tasmania, the Old Hobartian Association has launched an appeal to former students and to the wider community to raise the capital funds needed to create a perpetual scholarship. The Old Hobartian Centenary Scholarship from 2013 onwards will annually support students graduating from Hobart College to study in any discipline at the University of Tasmania.
The late Dr Judith Homeshaw was a loved and respected member of staff in the School of Government. Family, friends and colleagues have launched an appeal to raise funds to create an annual scholarship in her name for a student entering an honours course at UTAS.
The Dr Judith Homeshaw Scholarship will support a student in any faculty whose thesis will relate to those areas which Judith was passionate about: Women's participation in the contemporary Australian public sphere with respect to any of: work and employment; government; politics; health care; or science.
The inaugural scholarship will be awarded to a student commencing study at honours, masters or research level in the 2012 academic year.
The UTAS Foundation is the vital fundraising arm of the University. Its activities help to ensure UTAS remains a vibrant institution - a leader in education that produces quality graduates and research connected to the businesses and industries of Tasmania.
Gifts to the Foundation promote excellence, innovation and participation at UTAS. Support from our alumni and friends is critically important to ensure that the University continues to fulfil its mission as Tasmania's university and is able to make a significant contribution to the cultural, economic and social development of the state.
