Creating the opportunity for UTAS students to excel

Samantha Allan, 2011 Annual Appeal Scholar, BSc, BE '14


Over 750 students applied for the Annual Appeal Scholarship this year and only one award could be made. Thanks to the support of our alumni and friends, the 2010 Annual Appeal was the most successful to date raising over $150,000 plus matching funds which will support two additional scholarships in 2012.

In 2011, the aim of the Annual Appeal is to further increase the number and value of scholarships available to new students each year to four scholarships valued at $5,000. With the generosity and support of our alumni and friends we also hope to increase the value of the Development Fund which provides support to areas of greatest need at the University.

Arthur Cobbold Memorial Lecture Appeal

Emeritus Professor Arthur Frederick Cobbold

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.
