Walter and Eliza Hall Trust Opportunity Disability Scholarship

Walter and Eliza Hall were life long philanthropists. Following the passing of Walter Hall in 1911, Eliza set up a million pound charitable trust as a means of assisting those in need. The Walter and Eliza Hall Trust has since helped tens of thousands of Australians in their time of crisis. Many others have been assisted to reach their full potential through the support and encouragement of the Trust. Through the selfless generosity of the Late Judy Lennox (herself severely disabled), The Walter and Eliza Hall Trust have in line with her wishes, established a disability program to assist students living with a physical disability.
