Honouring the legacy of Bhavita Patel

09 Nov 2017

Bhavita Patel was an alumna of the ANU College of Business and Economics (CBE) and a treasured Deloitte employee. After Bhavita died in 2017, her family and colleagues wanted to honour her memory by establishing a scholarship.

The Deloitte Foundation, together with Bhavita’s family, decided to establish a scholarship at CBE to improve access to tertiary education for students who may not otherwise be able to attend ANU, as well as recognise and reward academic excellence.

In a further fitting tribute to Bhavita’s wonderful personal qualities, the scholarship prioritises students with an authentic and deep commitment to community.

Gifts to the Bhavita Patel Undergraduate scholarship will support the establishment of a perpetual endowment so that the scholarship can continue to be awarded in Bhavita’s name.
