Being part of the Keystone family doesn’t end when our students graduate from University. Our connections remain strong as they continue into their property career.
Our strong alumni group are the proof that the Keystone scholarship programmes work. You will find our Keystone graduates across some great positions throughout our industry. Their success is something we like to celebrate and we would like to share with you some of these stories of accomplishment.
Lloyd Budd was the recipient of a Keystone Trust scholarship in 2000. He has literally come a long way since then, recently finishing a seven-year stint as the Commercial Director at Majid All Futtaim in Dubai, a journey that encapsulates …
“Looking back I can see the difference Keystone made to my life, they inspired me to reach those goals I had set with Craig. I look up to all the students that went before me, and the people that I have met through these networks are now some of my best mates. Its inspiring to see how the organisation has grown and now, it’s my turn to give back.”
Josh Leckie is a bit different to most other Keystone students, as he is the one of very few to pursue a career in law. However, he still believes that Keystone was instrumental in helping him to grow his career …
Our Keystone alumni group was formed out of a common desire to give back to the Trust once students had graduated. Anyone that has received a Keystone Scholarship can be part of this group and its a great way to stay connected with others in the industry.
Our alumni group ensure that previous Keystone Trust Scholarship recipients stay connected with their peers, our sponsor family and also help them stay in touch with current students and Trustees. As you would imagine our Alumni are based all over the globe, and with regular communications we try to ensure that this group is always in touch.
The main objective of the alumni is to keep our Keystone graduate networks alive. There are lots of opportunities to ensure this happens with sponsor company events, site visits or even just a social get together – it’s great to keep in touch.
Our success stories
We are very proud of our alumni group and their achievements across this industry. Our graduates are working all over the globe and in many different roles. We would like to share some of the stories of what they are up to, and we hope you enjoy reading their own personal stories of success and being part of the Keystone family.
Our Keystone alumni group was formed out of a common desire to give back to the Trust once students have graduated. Anyone that has received a Keystone Scholarship can be part of this group and its a great way to stay connected with others in the industry.
We encourage all our alumni members to stay involved and remain connected with Keystone. The networks that have been created from being part of the Keystone family will continue throughout their professional life.
The Buddy Programme
Alumni members have the opportunity to become a “Buddy” to our first year students. This relationship is of great benefit to our students as they learn to navigate their new university experience. Having someone that has been through the same learning journey really helps students settle into their tertiary studies, and having a supportive ear when its needed can make a big difference.
Ways to give
We would like to encourage our alumni group to pay it forward to the Trust that has supported them. This could be as simple as donating the cost of a cup of coffee a week. Your commitment back to Keystone will assist us in supporting students into the future.

As a registered charity any donations over $5 made can be partially claimed back in your tax return.
