The Fung Scholars Australia Chapter is the latest addition to the Fung Scholars global network and was established in 2017. The Chapter aims to connect Fung Scholars with each other and welcomes those who are visiting, working or studying here for any length of time. Although the committee is currently based in Melbourne, we also welcome scholars to host events in other cities in Australia.
Please contact us if you are interested in being part of the Australia Fung Scholars Committee.
