Andreas Florez was a talented young musician with a passion for travel. He graduated from RMIT in 2015, but just months later was diagnosed with an extremely rare and aggressive strain of acute myeloid leukaemia. He passed away six months later, just after releasing his debut EP and before he could realise his dream of pursuiing a music career in the US.
The Andreas Florez Travel Scholarship for Artistic Excellence was established by the Florez family in 2016. The scholarship will enable a gifted music, film or design student to study overseas.
You can support Andreas’s legacy by donating to the scholarship, to give this life-changing opportunity to a talented student every year into the future, and support his family’s goal to raise $250,000.
