You have the power to change the lives of students and support their study success by donating to our Scholarships.
The impact of scholarships is powerful and enduring. Scholarships change lives, not only for the student, but for their family, the community and future generations.
An RMIT education is open to all, but for many students the cost of an education can prevent them from following their dreams. For first-in-family university students or those who’ve experienced disadvantage, a scholarship is life-changing.
Please help us ensure that education remains accessible for those who need it most. Your financial support allows us to continue our tradition of awarding scholarships to students who are facing social or economic disadvantage.
Like you, we are passionate about helping our future leaders and change-makers rise above hurdles to achieve academic excellence.
The scholarship took a lot of stress off my shoulders and enabled me to put all my focus on my studies to keep up with my new university life. It gave me the confidence to pursue my dreams and focus on my studies, all thanks to your act of kindness.
- Mohamed, Bachelor of Engineering Student
