Create a new world of opportunities

Federation University's vision is to create a new world of opportunities for all students, particularly those in regional areas.

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

Federation University Australia Foundation Scholarships ease the financial burden experienced by students who are deemed most in need of assistance.

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 and pledges throughout the year either as a one-off donation or via regular staff contributions.

"As a young student living away from home I was lucky to receive a scholarship in my first year of higher education studies. At the time this helped me achieve my goals. I contribute to the Federation University Australia Foundation through the staff giving program as a way of paying forward this benefit to the next generation of students.

I recently attended the Foundation Scholarships presentation and was moved by the fact that these are actually life changing for many recipients. I am proud to be part of the staff group that funds a scholarship and I encourage other staff members to consider a small donation each fortnight." Adrian Tinetti, Mt Helen Campus

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.
