Hawkesbury Alumni Chapter
Launched by the Vice-Chancellor and the Hawkesbury Campus Provost in 2014, the Hawkesbury Appeal has funded a number of undergraduate and research scholarships for students at Hawkesbury campus in disciplines ranging from agriculture to nursing.
It is part of a busy time at Hawkesbury campus including the activities of the Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment, the appointment of a new Chair in Sustainable Agriculture and the opening of the Research Greenhouse. A donor to the appeal, John B Fairfax AO, offered the following comment: ‘The Hawkesbury campus has a long and strong tradition in agricultural education. Australia has benefitted from methods and techniques developed at institutions such as Hawkesbury. It is therefore vital to maintain and encourage this education.’
