Mann Scholarship

John Norman Mann graduated with a Bachelor of Civil Engineering in 1948 from the University of Melbourne. He worked as an Engineer throughout Victoria, including with the State Water Supply Commission and in state government. John Norman Mann passed away in 2017.

John Norman Mann was himself a scholarship student and felt that his time at the University of Melbourne enabled the rich and full life that he and his wife Bette enjoyed. He wanted that same opportunity to be available for students in similar situations to his.
