About the Student Opportunity Fund

At the University of Wollongong, we believe that every student deserves the opportunity to pursue higher education, regardless of their financial situation. With the rising cost of living, many talented students face significant barriers to accessing the education they deserve. Your support can make all the difference.

What is the UOW Student Opportunity Fund? 

The UOW Student Opportunity Fund provides critical financial support to hardworking students who face financial and social disadvantages. This initiative is 100% funded by generous donors like you. 

Why your donation matters 

  1. Financial assistance: Economic support allows students to focus on their studies without the burden of financial stress. 
  2. Encouragement and support: Your donation shows students that someone believes in their potential and is invested in their future. 
  3. Transformative impact: Scholarships help students overcome obstacles, ensuring they can complete their education and succeed in their chosen fields. 

As we approach the end of the financial year, your support is more critical than ever. By donating to the UOW Student Opportunity Fund, you can help students achieve their dreams and contribute to their communities. Every donation, big or small, makes a significant impact.
