Alumni appeal

Thank you to our alumni for all of your support.

As part our Great Futures campaign, gifts to the alumni appeal this year will ensure even more talented young people are given the chance to fulfil their potential through a university education.

Each year, the University welcomes students from diverse backgrounds to enrol at Victoria. For many of these students and their families, the cost of their education may be out of reach. Alumni Appeal Scholarships will deliver more targeted support to these students. Each scholarship will help cover the ‘real costs of study’ and supports the aspirations and achievements of students who are financially disadvantaged.

This scholarship is transformational, and comes with so much more than just the financial help, which means that I can concentrate on my studies in arts and commerce and go for internships without having to stress about money to pay for my living expenses.

—Sophie MacDonald, 2017 Trustees’ Scholarship recipient

Receiving a scholarship is transformative, and we’d like even more students, no matter what their background, to be able to attend our university and aspire to great things.

The success of this appeal relies solely on the collective support of our alumni and friends—a gift today, no matter the size, will make a real difference to the life of a student tomorrow.

If you understand the value of receiving a world-class education and all the opportunities an undergraduate degree can offer a talented young person, then consider making a donation to the 2018 Alumni Appeal.
