The University of Sydney believes that financial constraints should not prevent outstanding students from going to university. You can help maximise the potential of our most promising students, whatever their social or cultural background through establishing a named scholarship. Naming opportunities require a donor to make a principal gift to establish the scholarship.
By establishing a scholarship you can:
- recognise our most talented students
- promote study in a particular faculty or field of study
- help students from remote areas
- support disadvantaged students.
Types of named scholarships
There are two principal types of named scholarships:
- Endowed scholarships are established through a gift which is invested and the annual investment income is used to fund a scholarship. As such an endowed scholarship can last indefinitely.
- 'Spent down' scholarships require a smaller initial gift, but entail a time commitment. The fund is 'spent down' over a period of time and additional contributions are required to ensure the scholarships’s continuation.
