Giving to scholarships and prizes

By establishing or supporting a scholarship 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, your gift makes a real and tangible difference to our students.


Scholarships can be established to:

  • support a particular group of students, undergraduate or postgraduate, that may face a disadvantage whilst studying;
  • support a cause or encourage a greater focus on a particular area of study; or
  • remember a loved one who contributed to a particular area of study.


Prizes are established to recognise academic excellence in a particular unit or course. The range of prizes offered supports and rewards the hard work and talent of our students.

They may be established to mark an occasion, to remember a family member, to give back to the university, or to simply reward today’s best and brightest students.

Development staff can work with you in collaboration with relevant academic staff to establish a prize that matches your interests and aims.

Further information

If you would like to discuss establishing a student scholarship or prize, please contact the Office of Development and Alumni Relations .

"At Mrs Mac’s we support a lot of community initiatives but donating the Rural Scholarships to Edith Cowan University we get to meet the recipients and see the immediate benefit to them."
