    George Lansell

    Established through funds donated in 1907 by Mrs Edith Lansell in commemoration of her late husband, George Lansell.

George was famous in the Victorian town of Bendigo for his tireless efforts to maintain the mining industry and for creating a fund to support the widows and children of men who lost their lives in the Bendigo mines.

What are the benefits?

A single payment of approximately $5000.

The preference is for scholarship to be awarded to assist in the funding of field work, however it could also be granted as a living stipend.
