We are preparing the College for a remarkable and sustainable future in all its dimensions: the student experience, college facilities and scholarships, together with academic and well being programs. Thanks to our recent expansion, each year 340 students are able to experience all that University College has to offer.
With the increase in the number of students, as well as challenging external factors, we are receiving a larger number of applications to the UC Scholarship Program. But thanks to the generosity of the College community, we offered 51 scholarships to 48 students in 2021. We have a long term target of offering 100 scholarships annually and are tremendously grateful to everyone who is making a contribution.
We also had over 70 alumni and community members volunteer their time to support students via a remote mentoring program during the pandemic. We will be continuing this mentoring program in the future.
We encourage you to be an active part of this exciting journey and we appreciate your support.
There are many ways you can make an impact, including:
“We recognise that students from rural and regional Victoria face many challenges in moving away from home, and university costs can be one more obstacle in the way of realising their ambitions. We’re delighted that the scholarships we’ve donated will assist talented students with a background like ours to enjoy the wonderful experience of university study while living in College” – Reg and Norma Binding
