Student Hardship Fund

Student Hardship Fund supports students requiring emergency financial assistance, so that they can continue their studies at The University of Notre Dame Australia

Like many of us, students face unforeseen emergencies and unanticipated expenses during the course of their studies. One off grants – to pay for groceries, medical expenses, emergency travel or utility bills – ensure our most deserving and vulnerable students are able to continue their education in spite of unexpected adversity.

Students like Laura:

Thanks to the Student Hardship Fund I was able to pay for groceries when I lost my job during the COVID-19 pandemic. It was a lifesaver and I will be forever grateful.
