The Goldsmith Economic Research Endowment was established in 2004 through a bequest by the estate of Barry Goldsmith. The Endowment is used to support scholarships at undergraduate and postgraduate levels as well as academic posts in the ANU College of Business and Economics.

It also provides the opportunity to hold public lectures to advance the study in the discipline of economics.
