Corporate Named Scholarships

Two people in front of a whiteboardUniSA has always been the go-to university for those who strive to make the most of their talent, no matter their background. Many of our students are the first in their family to attend university, and many come from socially or economically challenged backgrounds. Nevertheless, the high employment rate of our graduates shows that the right education can help you achieve your goals, regardless of your background.

Your generosity in the form of a scholarship or a grant could help students focus on their studies and enable them to become the best they can be, creating highly skilled and job-ready graduates.

By supporting a scholarship, you will be playing an important role in providing access to higher education for our deserving students and helping them to achieve their greatest potential. You will also be building the intellectual and professional skills of our community – a crucial investment in the future.

We know this is a deeply personal choice and will work with you to tailor an award that is unique to you or your organisation. You may also choose to pair a scholarship with a paid internship within your company or organisation, helping you to identify potential new recruits.
