Few people would be more excited for what’s to come in 2019 than former Monash Engineering and Science student Tim Graham.

The Lacrosse young gun is moving onto bigger and better things this year, after receiving a Lacrosse scholarship from Cornell University in New York. 

Graham was previously part of Monash’s Elite Student Performer Scheme and credits the University for “making sure I [he] had every opportunity to succeed”.

The scholarship opportunity is a product of Graham’s terrific play at last year’s FIL Men’s Lacrosse World Championships in Israel. 

Tim was deserves plenty of credit for being a major catalyst towards Australia finishing 4th place overall, highlighted by his strong performance in the Tournaments Quarterfinals against the host side of Israel. 
Tim and the Australian’s were bested in the 3rd place playoff by the Iroquois Nationals, following a semi-final loss to The United States, the tournaments eventual winners.

Graham completed high school at St Kevin’s College and was a Monash University student up until the end of 2018, where he was part of both Monash’s cricket and AFL clubs. 

An impressive all-around athlete, Tim’s scholarship at Cornell comes as no surprise.

Graham was a two time captain of the U18 Victorian Lacrosse team, he was named the tournament MVP at the 2017 U18 Australian Lacrosse Championship’s and was named a three time All-Star at the U18 Australian Lacrosse Championships from 2015-2017.

His sporting resume and many individual accolades speak for themselves and we can expect big things from Tim as he completes his freshman year at Cornell. 

A promising young career with an undoubtedly bright future. You can follow along with Tim's journey on the Cornell University website and we here at Monash wish him all the best for the upcoming 2019 season. #monashpride
