The General Sir John Monash Foundation recently announced the 18 recipients of its 2022 scholarships, Australia’s most prestigious postgraduate international study program. Among them is QACI alumnus Milan Gandhi who has received the 2022 Lee Liberman John Monash Scholarship.
Milan has a Bachelor of Laws (1st Class Honours) from the University of Queensland and is a former Australian Law Student of the Year. With the support of his John Monash Scholarship, Milan plans to undertake a Master of Public Policy at Sciences Po and identify policy solutions to safeguard Australia’s democracy from the harmful effects of digital technologies such as social media platforms.
Milan has engaged in multidisciplinary roles as an advisor on law and policy and as an innovation strategist. Milan works for DMTC, assisting to drive innovation in Australia’s national security and related sectors. He is the founder of The Legal Forecast, an organisation exploring the intersection between law and new technologies, and the chair of the Australasian Cyber Law Institute’s ‘Democracy and Public Knowledge’ subcommittee. Also, an alumnus of Bond University’s film and television program, Milan has a background in writing and directing, and is co-producing a documentary project about climate change litigation.
The QACI community is proud of Milan for following his passion for lifelong learning and striving to make the world a better place. We extend best wishes to him as he prepares for his studies abroad and look forward to celebrating his continued success. Congratulations Milan!
