Monash last week won an award in the education category of the 1999 Governor of Victoria Export Awards as a significant provider of tertiary education in Asia and a strong advocate of global networking.
The award recognises that Monash has an increased demand for its overseas courses and has seen nearly 13 per cent growth in exports over the past year, earning the university more than $64 million.
The awards aim to identify and honour the success of Victorian exporters across all sectors of business. They promote the importance of exports to the growing Victorian economy.
Monash is now automatically entered as a finalist in the 1999 Australian Export Awards, to be announced by the Prime Minister, the Hon. John Howard in Melbourne on 1 December.
Monash Law/Commerce student Stuart Stoyan is this year's joint winner of the top Arthur Anderson scholarship.
The scholarship is awarded on the basis of academic merit as well as achievements in areas such as student activities, sport and cultural activities. Students must also possess the personal attributes necessary to excel in a professional services firm.
In addition to the monetary reward, scholarship winners undertake vacation employment with the firm.
