2020 Student Empowerment Fund
Your support will help change lives
As we are seeing all too clearly with the impact of COVID-19 on everyday lives, financial hardship can be sudden, severe and unexpected.
The Student Empowerment Fund is available to students who are experiencing unexpected financial hardship. It consists of a one-off bursary to contribute towards immediate, short-term needs including basic living and medical costs.
UC is handling a sudden increase in student calls for help as COVID-19 has affected so many casual jobs. We are passionate about keeping our community of students engaged in learning and safe - we need your help to assist them.
You can keep our most vulnerable students safe, well and studying - even in these extraordinary times.
Please make a contribution to a student in need by giving today.
100% of donations go directly to the fund and to students in need – and are fully tax deductible.
No amount is too small.
