History Trust Fund

In 2014 a fund was established to receive donations and bequests that support the activities of the History program at Melbourne, including the establishment and endowment of positions, teaching and research projects and the support of general History initiatives.

Since 1854, the University of Melbourne's History program has been at the forefront of the study of history in Australia. In terms of the size of its graduate research school, the number of postdoctoral fellows, the level of competitively-awarded research grants and the specialist knowledge and practical experience of its staff, it remains one of the most significant programs in Australia. Teaching and supervision is offered for undergraduates and postgraduates across a range of periods and geographic and thematic areas. The program is proud of its diverse and international student body. Areas of specialisation include ancient history, medieval and early modern history, and modern history, with specialists in European, Asian, African, American and Australian studies.

In 2014 a fund was established to receive donations and bequests that support the activities of the History program at Melbourne, including the establishment and endowment of positions, teaching and research projects and the support of general History initiatives. Developed as an initiative of the Melbourne Humanities Foundation, especially the Deputy Chair of the Foundation Mrs Fay Gilbert, the fund aims to ensure that the study of History remains at the forefront of teaching in the Faculty of Arts at Melbourne. Recognising that there is sometimes a gap between a program's aspirations and resources, the Fund has been established to enable friends and alumni to help the program to fill that gap. With your help, the program can sustain and increase its efforts to ensure that students at Melbourne have access to the best that History can offer - to teaching, research and scholarship in this crucial field of study.
