About the donor
Born 22 February 1932, the Reverend Father Miltiades Chryssavgis studied History and Classics at the University of Melbourne. Granted a scholarship that supported his residence at Trinity College from 1952 to 1956, he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (Hons), majoring in History and Classics. Receiving further support in 1956 he was awarded a scholarship for his Master of Arts degree, during which he studied texts of classical historians and the origin of the Greeks. Reciprocating the assistance he received while studying, in 2006 the Reverend Chryssavgis made donation to the University of Melbourne, establishing a scholarship for the payment of the living expenses or student fees of Arts students in financial need. The fund is named for the Reverend Chryssavgis and his wife Alkistis.
