By making a gift to Notre Dame, you are supporting the learning, teaching and research programs that are shaping a better future.

Hardship Assistance Fund

Like many of us, students face unforeseen emergencies during their studies, such as health issues, loss of work, family issues, domestic violence, and extreme weather events.

These one-off grants pay for groceries, medical expenses, emergency travel or relocation, or utility bills, ensuring our most deserving and vulnerable students can continue their education despite unexpected adversity.

We recognise the importance of investing in evidence-based research. By building and developing our knowledge and capabilities, we can continue to improve the lives of our community and individuals throughout Australia.

Your support for our research endeavours, including those within our three research centres, will ensure we continue to play a vital role in addressing many of the complex issues that face our society today.

Opportunity and Merit Scholarships

Celebrate Academic Achievements

At Notre Dame, we are honoured to have a community of high-achieving students dedicated to academic excellence and service. With the generous support of our alumni, industry partners, and friends, we can reward and showcase their accomplishments through our prize-giving program.

Your contribution can help us continue this tradition of recognizing deserving students who are making a difference in the world. By donating, you can choose which school you want to support and even present the award to the recipient.

I chose to study at Notre Dame due to how caring and supportive all the lecturers and teaching staff. They know you by name, not by a number.
