The Walter Mangold Trust Fund, Education Scholarships to Study Abroad-2011, Australia

Purposes of these Scholarships:

The Walter Mangold Trust Fund (“the Trust”) has been established to further the belief that better understanding between peoples, and consequently lessening of conflict, can be achieved by improving communication between them.  The study of languages, and as a consequence the culture associated with each language, is one way to attain those outcomes.  The history of the establishment of the Trust can be viewed at www.mangoldtrust.org.au.
