Donate to student scholarships

Receiving the Muriel Ramm Science Bursary has meant an incredible amount to me. It hasn’t just freed me from some of the pressure of juggling study, income, and bills. It has also given me an incredible moment of perspective and recognition during one of the most challenging periods in my life. Amelia-Grace Boxshall

Support an early career researcher

Your support of talented early career researchers can provide critical encouragement at what can be a challenging time in their career. Donations can enable breakthroughs in research, purchase of specialist equipment, or development of important new research networks.

Donate to early career research

The Andrew Sisson fund paid for an expert in linear logic to visit Melbourne and stay for a week, and it was this visit that led to a crucial breakthrough. Together with my Masters student, we have made substantial progress in the last two years. I think the work holds a lot of promise, and I expect there will be significant applications, both theoretically and in industry.Dr Daniel Murfet, Mathematics and Statistics lecturer

Support students studying in Dookie

Melbourne students who undertake a residential semester at Dookie gain the insights and practical foundations to fully harness their undergraduate study in agricultural science. Getting to Dookie, however, comes at a price – one that many students are unable to pay. Donating to the Dookie Fund will enable more students to benefit from having a Dookie experience and produce graduates that have a deep understanding of sustainability and land management issues affecting Australian farming.

It was a joy to get to live and work at Dookie campus. I achieved great marks that semester: the best I had achieved in my time at uni. Learning something in a classroom, and then being able to apply it in the field, boosted my learning and development tenfold. None of this would have been possible without the scholarship.A Bachelor of Agriculture graduate
