ANU Rural and Regional Equity Scholarship Launch
ANU Students for Regional Scholarships

The time has come.

Today, we are proud to announce the launch of the ANU Regional and Rural Equity Scholarship. The scholarship will provide a regional student... moving to the ANU with $5,000 to assist them in their relocation and accommodation costs. The scholarship will be offered each year for the next 4 years.

We want this scholarship to help more students, and last longer than 4 years. But to do so, we need to fundraise enough money to grow the existing $20,000 we've raised into a fully fledged endowment fund, capable of producing multiple scholarships into perpetuity.

Our first 'checkpoint' in doing so is raising $5,000. And we need your help. You can do so by following the link below to our crowdfunding page, where you can find out more about the scholarship and our crowdfunding campaign. Share this link with your friends, like our page, and donate.

A scholarship enables a regional, low SES student the opportunity to join university clubs and societies, play college sport, volunteer and intern - experience enriching opportunities that they wouldn't have otherwise, ultimately leading them to 'give back' to the ANU and wider community in ways they couldn't have done so before.

Your support will mean that students, like us, are not constantly struggling financially and working endless hours to afford to go to University. Your support will have a lasting impact on the life of a student and, in turn, their family, their home community and the ANU community.
