Give to an Appeal

Giving to an appeal means directly supporting students and researchers at the University.

Every year we invite our generous supporters to donate to two important appeals;

  • the Barr Smith Library Appeal, and
  • the Augustus Short Scholarship Appeal.

Gifts to the Barr Smith Library Appeal help us secure important collections to support our students and researchers, and gifts to the Augustus Short Scholarship Appeal support financially disadvantaged students from regional and rural areas.

Fund critical library resources

The Barr Smith Library is more than just a place to study – for almost 130 years it has been a place where students and researchers alike have found support and space for quiet reflection, while still being at the very heart of our North Terrace Campus. When you give to the Barr Smith Library appeal, you are preserving those experiences for generations of students to come.

This year, your support for the Barr Smith Library Appeal will secure access to two important collections: The Berliner Philharmoniker Digital Concert Hall and Migration to New Worlds.

Support student scholarships

Created to support high-performing country students who are facing financial hardship, these scholarships are one of the most influential ways you can support our students.

"When you make a gift to the Augustus Short Scholarship fund, you aren’t just helping students pay for textbooks – you are offering a lifeline to students from regional areas. You are showing us that where we live shouldn’t determine whether or not we go to uni." – Catherine Sloper, 2018 Augustus Short Scholarship recipient.
