Mr Robert and Mrs Gayle Cowan

The Cowan family are long-time supporters of higher education and provide assistance to hundreds of students faced with the oft-daunting task of moving from regional areas to the city. Bob and Gayle established the Cowan Grant to support initiatives that help financially disadvantaged students gain a higher education.

They first donated to UniSA in 2005, and are particularly passionate about helping students from regional areas and students with disabilities. They also encourage the broadening of horizons through international travel and challenge.
