Create a new world of opportunities

Access to financial support can dramatically alter a student's chance of succeeding at university.

With the generous support of alumni, staff and donors the Foundation Scholarship Fund provides Foundation Scholarships that ease the financial burden experienced by students in need of assistance.

We understand many of our students are struggling financially as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the university is committed to supporting them to continue their studies during this challenging time.

This situation is particularly difficult for international students who are far from home and their loved ones. In response, we have established a dedicated International Student Hardship Fund to provide further assistance through the pandemic.

We invite staff to support our students by donating or pledging to the International Student Hardship Fund or the Foundation Scholarship Fund as either a one-off donation or via regular staff contributions.

The feedback from students who have received financial assistance through the University's Coronavirus Special Assistance Scheme shows what a difference you can make:

“There are no words that I can say to convey the appreciation for this support. I really appreciate your kindness and the great opportunity. Thank you so much for everything.”

“This help has been invaluable to me. I wouldn't know how to manage without your support.”

"Thank you so much for helping us. Because of you I will able to pay my fees and get food."

Help us change lives

Every after tax-donation above $2 is tax deductible. Pre-tax contributions through salary sacrifice are not tax deductible, however staff obtain a tax benefit through a reduced income tax liability. Salary sacrifice contributions are not subject to Fringe Benefits Tax. The University is a registered charity with Deductible Gift Recipient status.

You can set up a fortnightly payroll deduction, either 'after tax' or by salary sacrifice (pre-tax) contributions using the form below.
