The generosity of our community underpins excellence at the University of Tasmania. Every year, close to 500 students are supported by scholarships, and excellence in research and teaching is strengthened by the gifts of alumni and friends to the University of Tasmania Foundation.

In Memoriam: Bess Kable

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of longstanding benefactor Bess Kable.

Bess touched the lives of countless students, staff and researchers at the University through her generosity and spirit. She established the John Kable Memorial Scholarship in memory of her son, John Kable after he passed suddenly in 1995. John was a University of Tasmania graduate and respected barrister and solicitor in the Tasmanian community. Held in high esteem by his peers, he was appointed Queens Counsel in 1994. This generous scholarship has enabled more than 20 Tasmanians to study law at the University.

Bess also supported the University's Menzies Institute for Medical Research through making a donation towards assisting PhD students. The first student supported by this gift is undertaking vital research into the surgical management of morbid obesity in the Tasmanian public hospital system – research with the potential to greatly benefit the community.

Bess's remarkable contributions will continue to benefit future students in perpetuity, for which the University is deeply grateful.
