Alumni Leaders Scholarship

Young people from disadvantaged backgrounds can miss out on a university education all too easily. Something as simple as being able to afford the books on the reading list can be the difference between a student taking up a first-year offer, and letting the opportunity pass them by.

The UNSW Business School Alumni Leaders Scholarship makes it easier for students from disadvantaged backgrounds to attend the UNSW Business School. Through the scholarship, they receive a small but valuable financial contribution every year, for the duration of their degree.

Your support of the scholarship program will help us to give even more students access to a university education.

AMPLIFY Social Impact

Australia spends $510 billion a year on social change initiatives and yet, often, we know nothing about how effective they have been. In fact, despite our colossal spend, many social issues are only getting worse. If we want to see improvements, we need to understand how, where and for whom those initiatives are working.

Led by the Centre for Social Impact, Amplify Social Impact is Australia's biggest capacity-building project for the for-purpose sector. It provides thousands of not-for-profits and other social-purpose organisations with the insights and tools they need to strengthen their outcomes.

Your investment will help us connect evidence, people, technology and data so we can begin to drive sustainable change more effectively, and more efficiently, right across the sector.

Cancer Research: Validating an early detection test for ovarian cancer

There is currently no early detection test for ovarian cancer. As a result, 75 per cent of ovarian cancer is diagnosed at stage III or IV, making effective treatment almost impossible.

Right now, a team of UNSW researchers, led by Associate Professor Caroline Ford, are working to develop a test that will change how ovarian cancer is diagnosed.

By contributing to their work, you will be helping to make early detection a reality. Tumours that are detected at an early stage can often be surgically removed, significantly improving the prospects of women with ovarian cancer.

Community-Led Regeneration: Yuwaya Ngarra-li

The town of Walgett in far north-west NSW has been identifed as one of the most disadvantaged areas in Australia. First Nations people make up close to three quarters of the population. The recent drying up of local rivers has raised concerns about high sodium levels in local drinking water, and the high cost of healthy food.

Yuwaya Ngarra-li was established to address the social challenges embedded in the Walgett community. It is a community-led partnership, founded on the strengths and capabilities of the Dharriwaa Elders Group and UNSW.

Yuwaya Ngarra-li has a ten-year strategy for Walgett. It encompasses a range of projects, from micro-farms that promote social enterprise and provide training opportunities, through to initiatives that divert the town's young people from the juvenile justice system.

Your contribution will help realise the Yuwaya Ngarra-li strategy and break the cycle of disadvantage in Walgett. It will also support the development of a model that can be applied in other towns, empowering Aboriginal communities across the country to close the gap. Your support will be truly revolutionary.

David Cooper Memorial Fund

Professor David Cooper AC was a respected HIV clinician, an internationally renowned researcher, and the founding Director of The Kirby Institute. David passed away in March 2018.

David's ground-breaking, collaborative research saved countless lives. His accomplishments were many, but he remained acutely aware of the need to address global health injustices. In particular, he believed it was unacceptable that infectious diseases continued to have a disproportionate impact on some of the world's most disadvantaged communities.

The David Cooper Memorial Fund aims to realise David’s vision for equitable access to healthcare. With your support, we will continue to work towards a future where communities that are vulnerable to infectious diseases have ready access to quality treatments, cures and prevention programs.

For students, scholars and the community, it provides insights into the lives of those that made their way to Australia in the 1950s and '60s. It tells their stories of adversity, strength and progress. And it gives us a valuable perspective on the Australian experience of migration and multi-culturalism.

Neurological, mental health, and drug and alcohol disorders are a leading cause of disability in Australia. Together, they account for about a quarter of the the community's health burden. And they have an out-sized impact on the national health budget.

New Cancer Cure

Cellular immortality is one of cancer's most threatening characteristics. It is also the key to the development of a new kind of cancer treatment, generated by the work of the UNSW Cancer Cell Immortality Group.

The Group has delivered a world-first breakthrough with the development of a specific biomarker for one of the mechanisms that can activate immortality in cancer cells. It's called the Alternative Lengthening of Telomeres mechanism, or ALT mechanism for short.

The ability to identify and measure the ALT mechanism has led to the development of new ALT-targeted therapeutics and diagnostics. These new anti-cancer treatments are proving effective, while producing minimal side effects.

The Cancer Cell Immortality Group needs your investment. The support you provide will lead to further breakthroughs in cancer research, making a significant difference to the lives of people living with cancer, and their families.

Nura Gili Indigenous Program

Education is the key to human development. Despite this, First Nations students in Australia are much less likely than their peers to finish high school and go on to university.

Addressing the social justice imperatives of Indigenous Australians is a priority for UNSW. Through the Nura Gili Indigenous Programs Unit, we aim to make sure that First Nations students have the greatest possible opportunity to succeed at university.

Nura Gili is a targeted program that embraces Indigenous knowledge, culture and histories . Students have access to study facilities, tutoring, accommodation and employment support, pastoral services, scholarship advice and support for social and emotional wellbeing.

Nura Gili also runs programs for First Nations high school students to encourage them to think about a university education.

Infectious diseases kill more than 17 million people a year. Over the last three decades, at least 20 new diseases have emerged, while in many parts of the world, vaccine-preventable diseases are making a deadly comeback. These epidemics have a disproportionate impact on marginalised and disadvantaged communities.

The Kirby Institute is a leading research institute dedicated to the prevention and treatment of infectious diseases. Established in 1986 in response to the HIV epidemic, our work addresses a broad range of diseases including viral hepatitis and sexually transmissible infections. We have been important contributors to a number of global breakthroughs, including the management of HIV as a chronic disease, and the effective treatment of hepatitis C.

Our pioneering work relies on your support. With help from you, we will continue to develop remarkable innovations that save lives in the world's most vulnerable communities.

UNSW Indigenous Scholarships

Currently, First Nations people make up 3% of the Australian population but just 1.9% of the national undergraduate population at Australian universities, this number is closer to 1% at Go8 Universities. This represents a substantial missed opportunity to elevate our future Indigenous leaders across society and industry. Increasing the number of Indigenous students is a priority for our University, and is a core goal of the UNSW Indigenous Strategy.

By supporting the creation of scholarships tailored to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, you not only help to ensure more equitable access to higher education, but also will advance the representation of First Nations people across a broader array of societal and professional realms. Coupled with UNSW’s strong commitment to pastoral care and our excellent retention rates for Indigenous students, scholarships ensure more Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students feel equipped to enrol at our University, are set up for success, and graduate into their career of choice.
