Support our equity and access scholarships

You have the power to change the lives of students and support their study success by donating to our Scholarships Appeal.

Our students are still feeling the effects of the pandemic acutely. Many lost jobs as lockdown hit the retail and hospitality sectors hard. Others gave up their city accommodation, moving back home with family to weather the storm. 

Though lockdown is over, and our campuses are opening again, our students need your help to bounce back and succeed in their studies. 

Thanks to donors like you, in 2020 we awarded over 600 philanthropic scholarships, but the need is so much greater. Approximately 75 per cent of eligible scholarship candidates are unable to receive a scholarship due to limited funding.  

Please give our students the support they need to succeed in their studies – donate to our Scholarships Appeal. 

At RMIT, we are passionate about ensuring a diverse range of students can enjoy a quality education. That is why our scholarship program is unique in its focus on equity, assessing the needs of students experiencing financial and educational disadvantage to improve their success. 

The impact of our equity and access scholarships is undeniable and has consequently been identified as the area of greatest need for RMIT University. The work done to create equity for our students not only empowers the individual, but scholarship support has a flow on effect for families, the wider community, and future generations.  

You can give RMIT students experiencing financial and educational hardship the support they need to complete their studies and achieve their goals.  

Receiving a scholarship has humbled me and I am now, more than ever, driven to become someone who’s able to help struggling youth and give back to my society.
