Carving a new path

Thanks to the generosity of the Hansen Little Foundation, 20 exceptional students from all around Australia will have access to a unique financial and personal support program to help them carve a new path to success. Each year, more Hansen Scholars will join the University, financially supported to study and live in the academically enriching environment of Little Hall.

A place to call home

The Hansen Scholarship Program calls for a building that matches the ambitions of its future students. The new Little Hall will be home to all Hansen Scholars at the University of Melbourne. Architecturally inspiring, the design will become a safe and dynamic learning environment for every student.

Nestled between our Parkville campus and the CBD in Lincoln Square South, adjacent to a tram line, and combining abundant personal spaces with vibrant shared precincts, the building will be a true hub for student life.

Through the Academic Enrichment Program all 669 residents of Little Hall, not just the Hansen Scholars, will receive first-year study support, graduate career masterclasses, and academic support in an intellectually rich environment, to provide a smooth transition into university life and realise their academic potential.

A foundation to unleash ambition

Advancing the future of Australia through access to excellence in tertiary education is one of the Hansen Little Foundation’s core beliefs.

Jane Hansen and Paul Little believe that an individual’s life trajectory should be guided by their determination to achieve their ambitions, regardless of any limiting social or economic barriers.

It is important to us to ensure that you have every chance at success, and we are looking forward to seeing you flourish at the University of Melbourne.
