Despite our best efforts, every year we see some of our students at risk of abandoning their studies through no fault of their own. Your gift can help turn their ambition into achievement.
With rising costs, the number of students requiring support increases every year. Expenses associated with housing, transport, textbooks and daily expenses provide challenges that undermine the success of our students from low socio-economic and rural backgrounds.
Sabrina is one such student. Thanks to the generosity of donors, she has received financial help to support her during her Bachelor of Arts studies, including an Access Scholarship.
“As a rural student from a low-income family, both coming to Melbourne and staying at Melbourne was initially very challenging,” she said.
“However, the financial and educational support I’ve received from the very beginning has allowed me to thrive. I’ve made friends and been taught by interesting and diverse individuals, who have changed my views of the world in the best way.
“My university experience has been deeply rewarding, leaving me optimistic about the future. My thanks to every donor who has contributed to supporting students in need. It has made a difference to me.”
By making a gift through Believe – the Campaign for the University of Melbourne, you can provide students like Sabrina with the opportunity to benefit from scholarships and bursaries that relieve them of pressing financial burdens.
Please help us ensure these bright minds are not forced to abandon their studies due to financial difficulty. Making your donation prior to 30 June ensures your gift is tax deductible in the current financial year for Australian tax payers.
Your donation can make the difference between these students realising their full potential, or giving up on their dreams of a quality education.
