Supporting the Foundation
The Federation University Australia Foundation was established in 2010 to ensure more students have a chance of succeeding at University.
Individuals and organisations who are interested in supporting education in general, and education at Federation University Australia in particular, can do so through the Federation University Australia Foundation. The Foundation provides a vehicle to assist in making scholarships simple and straight forward. If you are considering supporting the University, please contact the Foundation.
Gifts can be designed as an 'unrestricted donation', in which case they will be invested in programs by the Foundation as approved by the Foundation Board.
100% of your donation goes toward the Foundation, which could include:
- Scholarships and financial aid
- Enabling students from low socio-economic backgrounds to gain a university education.
Foundation Scholarships are awarded at the beginning of the year to students who experience hardship or disadvantage. Students are selected based on their financial circumstances and commitment to study.
In 2016, 18 students received a one-off payment of $7,000 to commence or continue their studies at FedUni.
Applications for 2017 will open in August.
Students can find out more by reading the Selection and Administration Guidelines.
Each June we run an appeal for Foundation Scholarships. With the generous support of alumni, staff and donors we are able to increase the number of scholarships we offer year on year. We also accept donations throughout the year via our secure EventBrite page, select Give Online to donate today.
