UniLodge supports Australia’s students

7 April 2020

In 2019, UniLodge pledged $3 million to establish the UniLodge Australia Scholarships for supporting undergraduate students at The Australian National University (ANU). The scholarship aims to provide financial support to students in need to help them get an ANU education.

I'm the first person from my immediate family to go to University, so I had to conquer my first year with little prior knowledge. The UniLodge accommodation scholarship meant I could focus on preparing for my first semester without financial stress. I am incredibly grateful for this support, which allowed me to learn to the best of my ability.

Peter Bates, CEO of UniLodge, stressed the importance of helping students realise their potential, regardless of their background.

"UniLodge established these scholarships because we want to make a difference to the lives of young people," said Peter. "There are so many talented students in Australia who struggle to afford uni, and we believe that this should never be an obstacle to achieving your dreams."

Philanthropic support through the UniLodge Australia Scholarships is an important investment in the future of young Australians, ensuring their ongoing development and contribution to the broader community.

Partnerships formed by ANU with corporations and foundations to establish scholarships are based on a shared vision of empowering students and having a transformative impact on their lives.
