Student Support Fund


Give the brightest minds the opportunity to thrive

A university education is a life-changing experience. Right now, though, students are at risk of giving up on their studies because of severe financial hardship. They need help to cover the most basic needs, like food, rent and healthcare.

With help from the Student Support Fund, hardworking students like Ritika can survive their financial crises. They can overcome financial stress and uncertainty, using their talents to make exciting discoveries, solve big problems and have a huge impact on the world.

We’re proud of how the University community has come together to support our students in financial need, however we are still hearing from students who are close to giving up.

Unexpected financial emergencies can happen at any time and can lead students to abandon important opportunities or their studies all together.

This should not be the reality. With the help of our community, we aim to be able to provide every University of Melbourne student in dire and immediate financial hardship with the support they need.
