The Turnbull Government welcomes Australia’s largest personal philanthropic contribution to a university to expand the Tuckwell Scholarship Program at the Australian National University (ANU).
Minister for Education and Training Simon Birmingham said the contribution was made by philanthropists Graham and Louise Tuckwell and was worth about $200 million over 30 years.
Minister Birmingham said the expansion of the Tuckwell Scholarship Program would provide support and enhanced higher education opportunities for generations of students to come at ANU. 
“This incredibly generous gift from Graham and Louise Tuckwell will provide enhanced opportunities for future generations of students as part of their wonderful learning experience at ANU,” Minister Birmingham said.
“Both Graham and Louise Tuckwell benefitted from a first class higher education and I commend them on their commitment to provide enhanced higher education opportunities to hundreds of young Australian students over future years. 
“This long-term contribution, worth almost $200 million, will go to a program that has produced real world benefits for students since it commenced in 2013 and will now have an impact for many more students for decades to come.
“The Turnbull Government sincerely thanks Graham and Louise Tuckwell for their generosity and the generous philanthropic example they continue to set.”
