A day when the ANU community comes together to support Australia’s students. Thank you to all those who were involved, whether you attended or ran an event, came to see us at Kambri or made a donation.
On 18 September 2019, we celebrated our fifth annual Giving Day. Our University has a strong community of students, staff, alumni and friends. Giving Day is a chance for us all to demonstrate this strength by giving what we can. We’ve already received 426 donations, totalling more than $83,000, including $40,000 in challenge funds from ANU. There is still time for you to give more than a degree and help us to our overall goal of 650 donors.
This year, the focus is on support that directly impacts students, both current and future. Scholarships and other forms of student support help students make their dream of studying at ANU a reality and allows them to make the most of their time here.

Last year, more than $135,000 was donated to endow a scholarship that supports students from regional and rural Australia. This means that we are now able to provide a scholarship to a regional and rural student each year, in perpetuity.
Contributing to scholarships and student support helps students make their dream of studying at ANU a reality. When we support Australia’s talented students, we provide opportunities for them to make a difference to all of our futures.
Give more than a degree and make your Giving Day donation today.
The goal this Giving Day is 650 donations of any size. It’s not about how much you give, it’s about how many of us care about and get involved. In fact, the University will be providing an additional $10,000 of support for every 100 Giving Day donors.
Thank you for choosing to invest in the future of students and in the future of our nation.
Scholarships help students get more than a degree
We are asking for people to invest in Australia’s students by supporting them through scholarships, awards, and grants. Such support will give students the freedom to choose their university experience and to shape their education.
Without the necessity of juggling multiple jobs with full-time study, students have more time to study, pursue their interests and get more than a degree.
