Your impact is their opportunity
Success at university is much more than good grades. It’s about challenging yourself, going beyond your comfort zone, and seeing life through the eyes of others. It’s about learning to spot your opportunities when they come and summoning the courage to take them.
But what if there aren’t enough opportunities to go around?
More scholarships for more students
Since 2008, the number of ACU students has doubled – from 16,000 to 32,000.
Among this population:
- 1899 students live with disabilities
- 3450 students have a low socioeconomic status
- 3033 students have parents who did not attend university
- 3196 students come from regional and remote areas.
And yet the number of scholarships has not kept pace to support more students.
That’s why we encourage you to support our Creating Opportunity Fund with a gift today. By supporting the fund, you will directly help us create at least 100 more scholarships for our students.
You’ll help empower students like Terry Carberry, a proud Wiradjuri woman from Griffith in country NSW. She’s determined to break the cycle of generational issues that young Aboriginal people face within her community.
How your gift can help
Your gift, small or big, will help provide our students with the essentials they need:
- $25 helps with one week of transportation
- $50 helps with a uniform or lab coat
- $85 helps with a student nursing pack
- $100 helps with a textbook
- $200 helps with five hours of tutoring costs
- $400 helps with one month of food and groceries.
