About this scholarship:

Established in 2023 through a gift from Professor Deborah Cao in honour of her husband of 31 years, Lawrence R Tedesco.

Lawrence R Tedesco was born in New York City and grew up in the Catskill Mountains in upstate New York. He was educated in the State University of New York at Binghamton, Miami University, and University of Tasmania, among others. Lawrence worked and travelled in the USA, Israel, Africa, Southeast Asia, China and Australia. He worked with remote Aboriginal communities in health-related areas in Australia in the 1970s and was passionate about improving health outcomes for Australia’s Indigenous peoples. This scholarship honours Lawrence and his life of giving through the establishment of a perpetual fund to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education at UQ.
