Scholarships

'Thanks to the donors that have supported me with a scholarship, I have achieved my dream of becoming a paramedic. Despite all that has happened with my family, I have succeeded thanks to the opportunity I was given.'

- Rebecca Ayton, Bachelor of Health Science (Paramedicine), 2017

Give UNLIMITED opportunities

Some of our students face many challenges, but they are passionate and determined to succeed.

Scholarships acknowledge academic and personal achievements and inspire our students to overcome setbacks to reach their full potential.

By donating to scholarships at Western Sydney University, you are helping our students become the leaders of tomorrow and pave the way in government, industry and the community.

Give now and join us in creating unlimited opportunities for talented and hardworking students in Western Sydney.

Establishing a New Scholarship

A scholarship may be established through a donation or sponsorship from $7,500 per year. A scholarship can be established to support undergraduate and postgraduate students, including:

  • students studying specific courses or research disciplines
  • students from disadvantaged backgrounds
  • Indigenous students
  • non-school leaving students (mature-aged students)
  • students who are the first in their family to attend University
  • International students
  • students who have demonstrated academic excellence in their studies
  • students who have strong leadership potential or have contributed significantly to their community
  • elite sporting or creative excellence students

Donor funded scholarships for Honours and PhD students can be established to support the development of the University's research and innovation programs. These scholarships provide The University with the added capacity to attract and retain the best and brightest emerging researchers to Western Sydney, while assisting The University to increase its discovery potential and impact on the communities of Western Sydney.

We work closely with business and industry to offer scholarships that support mutually advantageous career development pathways and employment opportunities. We are committed to producing 'career ready' graduates, and constantly seeks to partner with business and industry to achieve this outcome.

Alternatively, if you are a staff member you can give to scholarships through our Staff Giving program.
