The Geelong Community Foundation Scholarship Fund is a public fund developed for the charitable purpose of providing scholarships, bursaries and prizes to promote education in pre-school, primary, secondary and tertiary courses.
The Allison Murphy Memorial Scholarship Fund is one of the Foundation’s scholarship funds. Alli operated a successful public affairs consultancy in Geelong. At age 42 Alli died suddenly on 25 February 2015, however her contribution to the Geelong community will not be forgotten. Her friends and colleagues established the memorial scholarship in her name to allow women to follow in Allison’s footsteps and study public affairs at Deakin University. To date two Deakin students have received a scholarship of $4,500 and an opportunity to be mentored by some of Geelong’s top leaders. More than $100,000 has been contributed to the Fund.
