Ways to Give

Areas of Greatest Need

By giving towards the greatest need, Western Sydney University can meet its changing needs by allocating funds where and when they are needed most.

Through sustained partnerships between the University, the community and the world of business, Western Sydney University aims to support educational and regional development by raising funds for important projects such as scholarships, prizes, research, teaching positions, academic programs and teaching facilities.


With the support of donors, scholarships allow students with the most potential access to quality tertiary education, regardless of their circumstances. They also encourage the most talented students to make Western Sydney University, their university of choice.

The rewards of a scholarship go far beyond a student's time at university. As graduates embark on their professional career, they will contribute to the advancement of our society and industries, now and in the future.


Prizes acknowledge our most-dedicated and high-achieving students. By contributing, you are helping us encourage and inspire them to continue striving for excellence.

As a supporter, you will be recognised for your gift. Each prize recipient receives information about the prize and the donor as well as a notification on their academic transcript.


Western Sydney University must consistently attract, and invest in, leading researchers. The University's innovative research programs are now positively impacting industry, government and community development on a regional, national and global scale.

Our researchers can continue ground-breaking research with thanks to the generosity of friends, alumni and business partners.

Library Collection

The Library is the primary scholarly information service provider of the University.

Through its seven campus-based libraries the Library provides and promotes access to those information resources and services integral to the scholarly endeavours of our students, staff and researchers, as well as to other members of the community and region.

Arts and Culture

The Western Sydney University Art Collection consists of a diverse range of artworks in a variety of media, including paintings, sculpture, ceramics, photographs and works on paper by 20th-century Australian artists, primarily from the 1960s to the present.

The collection also consists of works by local artists from the Hawkesbury, Macarthur and Nepean regions, as well as works by former and current staff and students of Western Sydney University.

We are keen to build its art collection through acquisitions, including purchases and donations, and loans in keeping with the Collection goals and policy.

Academic Positions

Western Sydney University welcomes involvement in contributing to a number of teaching and learning programs.

  • Professorial Chair is an investment in excellence. It is one of the most effective mechanisms for stimulating advancements in scholarship and research, for the long-term benefit of the community.
  • Research Fellowships provide the opportunity for early career researchers to further develop and refine their research skills and experience. A fellowship will generally be linked to a particular research project in line with the specialist skills of the fellow and the priorities of the institution and partners.
  • Lectureships ensure our students and future researchers are able to access high quality academics to help develop their full potential. Lectureships also provide opportunities for our academics to advance their skills and expertise and contribute significantly to their discipline through both teaching and research.
