Invest in future generations

With your support we can increase the number of scholarships available to our dedicated students and help them achieve their full potential, now and into the future.

Scholarships provide financial aid to students who might not otherwise be able to attend university. This includes students from rural and regional communities, low socioeconomic backgrounds and minority groups, or students who are living with a disability.

There are a variety of ways you can make an impact on the lives of our most deserving students, and ensure the success of our postgraduate students.

The University Scholarship Fund encourages the community to support commencing students by providing sustained access to a university education. Support the University Scholarship Fund.

The Student Hardship Fund provides students with financial relief during a difficult time, allowing them to continue with their studies. Make a gift to the Student Hardship Fund.

Named Scholarships
An undergraduate scholarship may be named through a donation of $5,000 per year, with a three year commitment; a postgraduate scholarship can be established with a gift of $10,000 per year, with a three year commitment.
