Every student’s story is different and scholarships are often a life-changing financial contribution that enables them to commence or continue their studies, without the added stress presented by the day to day costs of living. This could mean buying food, paying rent, transport and household bills, bringing up children as single parents, being a family on one income, becoming unemployed or caring for a sick loved one.

Our scholarships also reward students who have demonstrated academic brilliance and aim to encourage them to always strive for success.

Scholarships change lives by providing essential assistance when it is needed the most. The University wishes to recognise the support of our most generous donors, thank them for placing their trust in our students and acknowledge their ongoing commitment to Notre Dame by sharing their stories.
