The extreme stress of financial hardship limits a student’s ability to focus on their academic goals and can even force them to abandon their studies and their hopes for the future. 

By donating to the Student Support Fund, you can help provide talented students like Claire with immediate financial relief to cover basic needs such as food, transport, rent, health and wellbeing, and the cost of doing their degree. 

Sadly, many students, just like Claire, are having to make choices based on their limited means, rather than on what they need to thrive. 

“Trying to study and build a future for yourself whilst worrying every day about where your next meal is coming from, or the house you live in, is just so hard to deal with.” 

Thankfully Claire was given the helping hand she needed thanks to the generosity of University of Melbourne donors. 

“The money wasn’t just money. It represented choices, security, a lack of stress, and everything else that I’d been struggling with for so long. 

“I was very, very lucky. I feel like I have come out better on the other side. I know so many people who aren't always able to do that, or don't have that opportunity.”

Claire hopes that by sharing her story, she will be able to demonstrate how much of a lifeline your support is for a student in need. She hopes to inspire you to give so that more struggling students receive the financial help they so desperately need. 

Please donate now to ensure no eligible student in financial need will have to be turned away from receiving financial assistance – now or in the future.
