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 promising students like Daryka with the immediate financial aid they need to cover essential costs like food, housing, transport and academic expenses.  

For students like Daryka the pandemic worsened the financial pressure she was under. 

“My Dad passed away when I was 16 and Mum isn’t able to work due to an ongoing back issue, so I have to support myself. I worked hard to get into university, but unfortunately lost my income as a result of the pandemic. I was worried about how I was going to pay for my supplies, textbooks, laptop and things like that.  

This constant financial pressure really played on my mind. It was affecting my ability to concentrate on my studies, and I just couldn’t see a way I could achieve my goal of becoming a mechanical engineer.” 

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

“Since receiving the financial support I so desperately needed, I can now see my future and want to work hard to achieve what I know I am capable of, so that I too can support someone in 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.
