Ancient History

Support students in financial need

Scholarships allow us to support the education of Australia’s most promising students. By funding scholarships you will support students who would otherwise find it very difficult to undertake university studies.

You will also help keep ancient history alive, because the future of ancient history depends on its scholars.

Encourage the next generation of scholars

After years of study, PhD graduates can find it very difficult to find employment. A brilliant academic performance does not guarantee a job.

With your help we can give scholars a kick start in their academic careers by creating post-doctoral fellowships.

These fellowships will give young researchers wonderful new opportunities. They will also enrich the study of Ancient History

Strengthen Ancient History research

Thanks to our many supporters, we have established a museum of ancient cultures and several impressive collections, which support our teaching programs; promote ancient history to school students; and enrich our research.

But we need to do much more.

With your help we can create a dedicated Ancient Cultures and Research Centre which will help us foster a scholarly environment that attracts eminent researchers from around the world.

Please join us in creating an exciting future

“The study of Ancient History has enhanced the reputation of Macquarie University in academic circles worldwide. I invite you to support a vibrant program, renowned for the quality of its teaching and research.”
