Western Sydney University

The Western Sydney University Community Scholarship was established to provide ongoing support to talented, ambitious and hardworking students who might not otherwise have the chance to study at university due to financial hardship or other circumstances out of their control.

Recipients of Community Scholarships embody the spirit of Western Sydney University, overcoming adversity and demonstrating a commitment to furthering themselves through education. Community scholarships are funded through the generous donations of staff, students, alumni and friends of the University.
