About the University of Melbourne USA Foundation

The education I received at Melbourne has benefited me incredibly and I'm very grateful. At the USA Foundation, we believe that all bright minds with the ability and desire to learn should have access to the Melbourne experience. Matthew Edmonds, President USA Foundation
