2019 Student Empowerment Fund
Your support will help change lives
Financial hardship can be sudden, severe and unexpected. The Student Empowerment Fund assists students who are experiencing unexpected financial hardship, affecting their ability to study. It contributes towards immediate, short-term needs including basic living and medical costs.
Students are required to demonstrate that this one-off assistance will support their study and that their current financial situation is atypical.
With bushfires affecting so many communities close to us, UC is currently focused on making emergency bursaries available to students preparing for the new year who need to replace essential items destroyed in the fires.
These bursaries are critical as they will reduce attrition of our most vulnerable students.
100% of donations go directly to students in need – there are no hidden fees or diversions and your donation is fully tax deductible.
You can make a contribution towards the fund by giving today.
