About the Sandy Duncanson Social Justice Fund

Tasmanian lawyer Alexander (Sandy) Duncanson died in June 2010 at the age of 37, after surviving cancer for 16 years. Sandy's family and friends have worked with the University's Faculty of Law  to establish a fund in his name through the University of Tasmania Foundation.

The aim of the bursary is to provide a University of Tasmania student assistance to advance a social justice initiative, encouraging more of our graduates to pursue their careers with integrity.

Donations can still be made here: (under "Designation" choose Sandy Duncanson Social Justice Bursary).
