Financial Inclusion Action Plan

Financial Inclusion Action PlanSwinburne was the first educational institution in Australia to participate in the Financial Inclusion Action Plan pilot program. The program is in partnership with Good Shepherd Microfinance, Ernst and Young, Centre for Social Impact New South Wales and the Department of Social Services.

The program aims to address financial exclusion by introducing initiatives that support students enduring financial hardship. It also assists them to build their financial capacity for the future.

Donate to the Financial Inclusion Action Plan fund

At Swinburne, we believe education should be possible for all – despite circumstances. We couldn’t offer the range of scholarships, grants or programs without the continuous generosity from our donors. From annual gifts that make an immediate impact to endowed gifts that last for generations, all contributions serve as a catalyst for positive change.
