The United States Studies Centre — supported by the American Australian Association (AAA) — will hold a Gala Dinner honouring Qantas Chief Executive Officer Alan Joyce AC for his outstanding contribution to the Australia-US relationship and tourism industry, as well as his dedication to inclusion, diversity and education.

Proceeds from the Gala will go towards the USSC Study Abroad Fund, which will enrich the lives of Australian students by providing opportunities in the United States, especially for those who would not normally have the means to do so.

Helping young Australians study in the United States is a vital component of the USSC mission. The Study Abroad Program is one of the Centre’s great accomplishments, the showpiece being prestigious internships on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, working and studying alongside American counterparts, building friendships that last lifetimes and strengthen the US-Australia relationship.

At the previous dinner organised by the USSC and AAA, we welcomed more than 500 of Australia’s senior business, academic, community and political leaders.

Past honourees have included former Prime Minister John Howard OM AC, Mike Kane, Frank Lowy AC, Rupert Murdoch AC, Jacques Nasser AO, Lindsay Fox AC, Anthony Pratt, Andrew Liveris AO and Richard Warburton AO LVO.
