Talent is everywhere. Opportunity is not

13 Apr 2022

At The Australian National University (ANU), we believe that every talented Australian student should be able to attend university no matter their financial means. A university education does more than just improve the lives of students, it can help lift their families and communities out of hardship, and be a driver of personal, social and national change.

The past few years have been tough on Australia's students, but - through the challenges of the COVID pandemic and numerous natural disasters - the ANU donor community rallied around them by giving generously to the Support Australia's Students campaign.

From 2018 to 2021, 3,245 generous donors gave $21,825,624 to support students, exceeding the campaign target by almost $7 million.

I can't explain how grateful I am for the scholarship because being at ANU, studying what I love, living on campus and meeting so many people has been the most influential part of my development.
