ACU launched the Creating Opportunity Fund in 2016 to provide scholarships for students who are highly motivated and deserving, but facing obstacles to their studies.
These challenges may include financial hardship, long-term medical conditions, disabilities, regional or remote disadvantage, sole parent or carer responsibilities, refugee status, or difficulties with English.
The Fund aims to break down these barriers to higher education and help future graduates reach their potential.
Why are scholarships so important?
As an ACU alumnus, you may already understand the financial difficulties many of our students are facing. Those entering university today will have the highest student debt of any generation in history.
For many ACU students from disadvantaged backgrounds, the financial burden can mean not studying at all.
DOUBLE the impact with matched giving
For every gift you make to the Creating Opportunity Fund, ACU will match your contribution, dollar for dollar, doubling the value of your donation.
A far-reaching positive impact
Giving just one student access to a scholarship can make an impact for many. Your gift will be supporting students like Terri, who are determined to break the cycle of disadvantage and make a difference in their communities.
When you make even a small gift to this fund, your contribution will create a legacy that benefits many ACU students for generations to come.
At ACU, 100 per cent of your gift always goes towards the students
*All gifts of $2 or more to ACU are tax deductible within Australia.
