Message from the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Engagement)
Professor Martin Betts
Deputy Vice Chancellor (Engagement)
There are students at Griffith who have fought to overcome extraordinary adversity before reaching our doors – and Griffith Futures Scholarships will allow them to not only shape their own futures, but to in turn give back to their community.
Students like Hettie Rowan, who was once a homeless teenager negotiating life on the streets and is today a second-year Bachelor of Arts student majoring in Japanese. Her goal is to work for a multi-national corporation which focuses on community development and environmental sustainability.The impact of your gift
Griffith has always recognised an obligation to give back to the community, and our students are at the heart of our commitment. Whether from the Staff Giving Program or the Annual Appeal, the University matches all donations to these scholarships dollar for dollar.
What this means is that a life-changing $5000 Griffith Futures Scholarship is established every time 10 of our staff donate as little as $10 a fortnight for one year to the Staff Giving Program. A powerful and transformational outcome indeed. Every one of us can make a difference through staff giving. And for all of you that do – thank you.
Supporting the Students' Future Fund means that we can help more students to reach their potential. Every contribution makes a difference.
Every gift counts regardless of the amount. For as little as $2 (pre-tax) per pay period, staff can help make a difference and be counted as a member of our growing community who give in a special way.
The Promoter of this Griffith University Appeal is the Director, Development and Alumni Office, pursuant to Sanction Number CP5701.
