For further information or assistance, please do not hesitate to contact the RSM office.


Would you like to help develop brilliant minds or to create opportunities to transform lives? You can, by making a gift to the RSM Future Leaders Fund.

The ANU Research School of Management have established an ambitious fundraising target of $2 million to support the establishment of the RSM Future Leaders Fund. The fund will be officially launched in 2016 to coincide with the ANU’s 70th Anniversary. The goal of the fund will be to support 70 students to access a quality education at Australia’s premier university.  The funds raised will provide 10 x 4 year PhD scholarships, 10 x 2 year Masters scholarships, 10 x 1 year Honours scholarships, and 40 start-up grants for new undergraduate students.

Beyond the social impact, investing in education also makes good economic sense. Research by Australian politician and former ANU Professor of Economics, Hon Dr Andrew Leigh MP, highlights that a high quality education has the potential to transform lives and significantly improve Australia’s national productivity. This is achieved through increased labour market participation and enhanced future income earning potential.

Interested donors can contribute to either a whole or part-scholarship, with optional named scholarships and prizes available for interested parties. For more information on the RSM Future Leaders Fund, please contact the CBE Advancement Manager, Kerry-Ann Hugo on +61 2 6125 7417 or at
