Encouraging and inspiring students

The Western Sydney University prize program acknowledges our most-dedicated and high-achieving students and 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.

You can select the area you would like your prize to support. We fully manage the administration process, including the selection of the recipient.

A prize is a donation of no less than $500, to be in place for a period of 2 to 5 years.

The following structure provides a suggestion on how to allocate your prize:

  • A prize of $500 awarded for achievement in an individual subject
  • A prize of $1,000 awarded for achievement in a particular course and year of study
  • A prize of $1,000 or more awarded to a graduating student for overall achievement in a particular course
