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 severe and unexpected.

The Student Empowerment Fund is available to students who are experiencing sudden 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 caused job losses in industries typically employing students. 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. One hundred percent of donations go directly to the fund and to students in need – and gifts above $2 are fully tax deductible. No amount is too small.
