Our initiatives

At ECU, we have a variety of projects that focus on enriching the lives of our students, investing in our leading research and providing a direct link to the community.

By choosing to support us through our many initiatives, you will be helping to enrich the lives of our students, researchers and the community. Key initiatives you can support are:

Scholarships, awards and prizes

By investing in a scholarship, award or prize at ECU, you are directly investing in the future of our students. Whether the support is to help students overcome barriers in acquiring an education or rewarding our high achievers, gifts to these projects make a real and tangible difference to our students.


Our goal is to build our research enterprise and generate enhanced research outcomes in selected areas of excellence, particularly those with the potential for a high social, economic, environmental and cultural impact.

By choosing to support our research initiatives though donation it will allow us to deepen our research capabilities. A donation could contribute to a specific research project, helping initiate research in an area of importance to you, or be unspecified and would go towards a research priority area for the University.

WAAPA Name Your Seat

The Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) provides one of the most comprehensive range of performing arts training in Australia and is recognised nationally and internationally for the quality of its graduates.

Name Your Seat provides a unique opportunity for friends and supporters to have a naming plaque placed on a seat in the Academy Theatre, the Geoff Gibbs Theatre or the Music Auditorium. A gift to WAAPA can make a big difference to our performing arts students, staff and infrastructure.

ECU Art Collection

The ECU Art Collection is a vibrant, dynamic representation of Australian and Western Australian art. The Collection dates back to 1947 and is a visual portrayal of the changing forms of art over the past 60 years. Artworks are acquired through purchase and donations, and the collection also contains many pieces by former ECU students.
