JCU Indigenous Student Support Fund

Education is a key social determinant in improving health and financial incomes and can change the trajectory of individuals and their communities. This fund provides grants and scholarships to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students studying at JCU.

Thanks to the scholarship program, the number of Indigenous students enrolling at JCU has surged in recent years, surpassing the 700 mark and accounting for an impressive 5.6% of the university’s total student body.

For those who share our commitment to effecting social change through education, there is an opportunity to contribute. You can play a crucial role in empowering Indigenous students with self-determination by donating to this worthy cause. Join us in creating a brighter and more inclusive future by supporting the scholarship program today.

JCU is a leading tertiary institution in Australia and the Asia Pacific and among the best universities in the world.

The JCU Indigenous Education and Research Centre (IERC) is a leader in providing Indigenous educational support, research and teaching. It offers Indigenous students access to exceptional educational support in a cultural family-oriented environment that inspires them to persist with their academic studies.

Indigenous students at JCU are studying a range of degrees in Health, Humanities, Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.  Our graduates create change in their own communities and beyond.

Your support can help relieve the financial stress on Indigenous students and their families, leaving more time to focus on their studies which creates  positive impacts on our students.
