Student Emergency Fund

Everyone deserves the right to an education. But 2020 has proven to be a year of extreme challenges for our whole community. And many of our students have found themselves impacted by emergencies and circumstances beyond their control.

That’s why we’ve set up the Student Emergency Fund. Any student who’s been impacted by disasters such as bushfires, floods, droughts or a health pandemic will be able to access a one-off grant of up to $1,000. This is a lifeline. But we can only offer it with your support.

Every dollar of your donation directly helps students in need. You’ll give them food to eat, equip them to study remotely, ensure they can continue to pay rent and have a safe and secure place to live. You’ll enable them to pursue their future.

Help a student in need continue their education.
