Scholarships, awards and prizes
Scholarships and awards for ECU students can be based on equity or academic excellence and are established to:
- support a particular group of students that may face a disadvantage whilst studying;
- support a cause or encourage a greater focus on a particular area of study; or
- in memory of a loved one, who contributed to a particular area of study.
Prizes recognise academic excellence in a particular unit or course.
As a donor of a scholarship or award, you will be informed of the student's progress throughout their course and will often have the opportunity to meet directly with the student. In addition, you will have naming rights for the scholarship, award or prize.
By establishing a scholarship you are providing the opportunity for tomorrow's leaders to excel whilst building your own connection to ECU.

"The scholarship I received allowed me to purchase all my textbooks required which resulted in me receiving higher marks and understanding the units with much more ease. In turn this allows me to graduate at the end of the year with good marks to show when seeking my preferred job."
