Students continue to need support

Thanks to the generosity of donors and the University, over 3,500 students have received help.

Due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 crisis, many students are still experiencing severe hardship.

If you can help, please join us and donate.

A COVID-19 Student Support Bursary provides up to $2,000 each to help our most needy students.

100% of your donation goes directly to students as the University absorbs all administration costs.

Griffith University is endorsed by the Australian Taxation Office as a Deductible Gift Recipient. Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible in Australia.

Now that most students are able to continue their study online, we are turning attention to the plight of the many students who are experiencing severe hardship due to the evolving COVID-19 crisis.

To help students impacted by the current situation, the University has created and is funding a COVID-19 Student Support Bursary package, providing up to $1500 each to help our most needy students. Yesterday, I authorised an additional one million dollars to be added to that fund. Despite significant investment by the University, the requests for support considerably out number the bursaries currently available and there are still hundreds of students in urgent need and likely to be more in coming months.

Will you help support these students? 100% of donations made will go directly to the students.

We want to reassure you that Griffith prides itself on providing educational opportunities for all and will do what it can to help students continue their education through the bursary and other avenues.

If you can help, please join us and donate now.

COVID-19 continues to challenge us all and we hope you and your loved ones are supported and safe during this difficult time.

Wishing you all the very best.

Kind regards,

Professor Carolyn Evans

Vice Chancellor and President

Over the course of my career, I have never seen a more difficult year for students. Many of them rely on casual work to get through their degrees and that work has now disappeared. Many rely on internet connections and computers at the university and are not able to afford to study from home. Their parents and partners are losing their jobs.

We know our donor community has always taken an active interest in student education and I wanted to let you know how you can support these at-risk students in response to the COVID-19 crisis.

The pandemic has thrown up many challenges for Griffith and our students. Recent weeks have seen a heavy focus on innovation in the academic space to allow educational delivery to continue. I am so proud of how quickly my colleagues have responded to this need.
