Many students, past and present, have benefited not only from the financial assistance of receiving a prize but also from the recognition of excellence that the prize represents. For most, a prize gives much needed encouragement and demonstrates, to future employers, aptitude and ability to perform.
Graduating from university with a prize represents your achievements at the university and is an extremely powerful tool to have when distinguishing yourself from graduates around the world. But for many ANU graduates, who top their relative subjects, no such advantage is given to them.
Supporting a prize at ANU makes a significant difference. It provides encouragement and recognition to students who will go on to make a difference to the world and helps motivate all students to apply themselves as best as they can.
How to give
You can make a difference by donating to an existing prize or you can establish a new prize by contacting the Philanthropy Team on +61 2 6125 5691 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your prize can be established in your area of particular interest, in memory of a close relative or friend, to support a cause or encourage greater focus on a particular area of study.
