ECU’s purpose is to transform lives and enrich society.

Our vision is to lead the sector in educational experience, research with impact, and make positive contributions to industry and communities.

One way we can achieve this is through strategic partnerships and corporate sponsorships.

Our Corporate Sponsorship Program aims to:

  • enhance the University’s brand image and reputation;
  • increase awareness of the University’s courses and research pursuits;
  • promote the achievements of university students, staff, alumni and researchers;
  • engage in a meaningful way with our key stakeholders; and
  • increase visitors to our campuses and showcase our facilities.

Sponsorship seekers

We value our partnerships and welcome proposals from organisations seeking sponsorship support. Funding is available as cash sponsorship, in-kind sponsorship or a combination of both.

How to apply

  1. Review the sponsorship application guidelines below to determine eligibility
  2. Submit sponsorship request and proposal via email to


  1. In most cases we require a minimum of four months’ notice prior to the event, activity or program being held.  Late applications risk not being considered.
  2. Ideally requests should be received before October to allow evaluation and inclusion in submission for funding as part of the University budget in the following year.

Please review our sponsorship guidelines below BEFORE submitting a proposal.

The range of activities that may be considered for corporate sponsorship can include, but are not limited to:

  • Industry awards and presentations that acknowledge excellence in relevant professional fields (e.g. teaching, nursing, arts, engineering, business etc)
  • Conferences held within WA that align with our course offerings and research
  • Promotional activities and events that provide positive exposure for the University and could potentially increase student enrolments to ECU
  • Support for activities and programs that promote and enhance learning, study and education in general.

The University is unlikely to support events, programs or activities that involve:

  • A conflict with ECU’s values
  • Benefitting an individual, person or family (ie those seeking support or raising money, community fund-raising events such as fetes or quiz nights)
  • Illegal activities, tobacco, gambling, alcohol, poor health choices, harm towards the environment, adult-related industries, racist organisations, political organisations or religious activities
  • Projects or events outside of Western Australia
  • Projects without specific objectives, activities, or measurable outcomes or that do not meet the sponsorship criteria
  • An organisation that has previously shown unsatisfactory management of sponsorship received or has presented unsatisfactory or incomplete reporting
  • High risk of damage to the University’s reputation based on activities from the sponsorship
  • Donations: the University has limited resources available for ad hoc requests and does not normally provide donations to groups or individuals who request cash.
