ANU Foundation USA

ANU has a strong connection to the USA through a community of alumni and friends living and working across the country. The ANU Foundation USA plays an important role in keeping our global community connected.

The mission of the ANU Foundation USA is to promote excellence in education and research at the Australian National University, including the exchange of knowledge, faculty and students between Australia and North America.

Our priorities

The ANU Foundation USA Board works closely with ANU to understand the University's priorities and identify how the Foundation can support them. Currently, the Foundation is focused on supporting a life changing student experience, transformative research, and equitable access to an ANU education. In particular, the Foundation looks for ways to support diversity, equity and inclusion at ANU. That is why our focus is on the Kambri Scholars Program, which supports the next generation of Indigenous scholars to come to ANU and go on to enrich their communities and give back to Country.

My goal as Chair of the ANU Foundation USA Board is to build a grassroots base of ANU alumni in the US who want to make long term impact by giving back to ANU.
