Creating Opportunity Fund

We award hundreds of scholarships funded by generous donors every year. But we receive many more applications from equally deserving students.

Your support of our Creating Opportunity Fund will help amazing students overcome barriers. They'll explore their talents and passions and get the education they deserve. They'll become the people they're meant to be.

Help our global outreach

Our aim is to break down barriers to higher education – not just for ACU students in Australia and Rome, but for vulnerable people internationally. That’s why we have two ongoing projects in East Timor and on the Thai-Burma border. Read more about these initiatives and support them in any way you can.
