Creating Opportunity Fund
Since 2008, the number of ACU students has doubled—from 16,000 to 32,000. However, the number of scholarships has not kept pace to support our students.
ACU launched the Creating Opportunity Fund in 2016 to provide scholarships for students who are highly motivated and deserving, but facing obstacles to their studies. These challenges may include financial hardship, long-term medical conditions, disabilities, regional or remote disadvantage, sole parent or carer responsibilities, refugee status, or difficulties with English.
Join Team ACU at the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival and raise awareness and funds for the Creating Opportunity Fund. You can help us create at least 100 more scholarships for our students in need.
For every gift you raise, ACU will match your contribution, dollar for dollar, DOUBLING your impact. 100 per cent of your gift always goes towards the students you support.
