Scientia Circle

Scientia Circle

The Scientia Circle is a program for those who have chosen to leave a gift to UNSW in their will. The program expresses UNSW’s heartfelt gratitude to those who empower our students, academics and communities for generations to come.  

The Scientia Circle is a close community of very special donors who are invited to private events which showcase UNSW’s critical research, educational opportunities and community impact.

Exclusive events & activities 

All members are invited to attend an annual celebratory luncheon, hosted by UNSW Chancellor, David Gonski AC and the Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Ian Jacobs.  

Members are also invited to a diverse program of events on campus including lectures and visits to UNSW’s museums, galleries, libraries and laboratories. With this, Scientia Circle members can gain exclusive insight into the work and progress of the University, while meeting some of our star researchers and students. 

Members of the Scientia Circle also meet like-minded alumni, friends and supporters of the University, as well as leading members of the academic staff. As a small token of our appreciation, members are offered an insider view of UNSW’s many achievements and aspirations.
