Established in 2020 by LFF Pty Ltd as trustee for the Lewin Foundation under the Create Change Scholarship Match Initiative and maintained by income generated from the endowment fund. Mr Walter Lewin (Bachelor of Commerce (Honours)/Bachelor of Laws (Honours), and Mrs Elizabeth Lewin, as founders of the Lewin Foundation, are funding the Lewin Scholarships to support need-based students who study an undergraduate Commerce and/or Business Management degree within the Faculty of Business, Economics and Law (BEL).

Through the Lewin Foundation, Walter and Liz have been blessed to see the positive impact that education has on other people’s lives and are incredibly proud to launch the scholarships to support those that have financial barriers preventing them from attending UQ and being able to receive the full educational experience.

After graduating from UQ, Walter launched a career in investment banking and venture capital investment.  Walter is currently the Chair of OneVentures, Director of Opportunity International Australia and Co-Founder of Harbour Management.
