Giving is a core principle at Griffith University and students are at the heart of that commitment

With the support of the Staff Giving Program, the University offers Griffith Future Scholarships, providing students in need with financial support.

Your generosity makes a world of difference—it’s so easy to change a student’s life for the better.

The University matches staff contributions dollar for dollar, meaning a life-changing $5,000 Griffith Futures Scholarship is established every time 10 staff donate as little as $10 a fortnight for one year.

Thanks to the generosity of staff, in 2017 the Students’ Future Fund has been able to provide 73 Griffith Futures Scholarships.
