Bhavita died in January 2017 after an incident in Melbourne's CBD. She had a passion for learning and a deep commitment to the community. Thus, The Deloitte Foundation, in consultation with Bhavita's family, agreed that a scholarship at ANU, where Bhavita studied business before embarking on her successful career, would best honour her.
The Bhavita Patel Undergraduate Scholarship recognises and rewards academic excellence, by enabling high potential students who are experiencing financial disadvantage to attend ANU.
Students who can demonstrate a passion for learning and a commitment to community will be rewarded with up to $10,000 a year for up to five years, to study in the ANU College of Business and Economics.
Gifts to the Bhavita Patel Undergraduate scholarship will support the establishment of a perpetual endowment so that the scholarship can continute to be awarded in Bhavita's name.
Your contribution will help ensure Bhavita's memory is honoured through providing disadvantaged students with an opportunity to access an education that may otherwise have been beyond their reach.
