Giving to Federation University Australia Foundation


In 2010 the Federation University Australia Foundation was launched with a $200,000 donation from one of the University's long-time supporters, Dr Wai-Man Woo.

Individuals and organisations who are interested in supporting education in general, and education at Federation University 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 Advancement Committee.

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 2021, over 110 students have received a Foundation scholarship or bursary to commence or continue their studies at Federation University.

Students can learn more via our website about the Foundation Scholarships.
