UniSA Student Hardship Fund COVID19 Appeal

Our most vulnerable students are impacted by the COVID-19 global health crisis in ways we couldn’t have anticipated. They’ve lost their part-time work, they’re cut off from family nationally and internationally, they’re having to adapt to online delivery and massive disruption. Many of them were struggling to make ends meet – balancing work and study – before the health crisis, and find themselves in dire circumstances.

As well as making every effort to provide flexible education solutions for these students the University of South Australia has created a $10 million student hardship fund.

The fund will support all UniSA onshore students through direct grants at all levels of study be they domestic or international, from our Foundation course, through to undergraduate and postgraduate levels and our research students.

At UniSA we look after more than 35,000 students - one third of whom are from disadvantaged backgrounds. If you can do something, however small – make a donation to augment the hardship fund by clicking here.
