Inspired by Renate Kamener's committment to peace and social justice, the Kamener Family and the Australian Jewish Democratic Society set up a scholarship with Melbourne University's Ormond College, to help and encourage Indigenous students to achieve their tertiary education ambitions.



The Scholarship is possible through the partnership between the Kamener family, the Australian Jewish Democratic Society, and Ormond College.


The annual Oration is the main fund raising event, and the scholarship's continuity is a result of the efforts of the three groups above and the generosity and good will of their friends, families and associates.

The scholarship is fully maintained by volunteers, and so 100% of funds gets to the scholarship bursary.
