Why are we giving cash away?

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected both the outlooks and future prospects of many university students. Some have delayed their graduations due to canceled internships or workplace layoffs/furloughs, working students have lost jobs, and some cannot continue with their studies at all due to the downturn in finances.

This scholarship is to ensure the next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs are able to maintain expenses such as tuition fees, internet costs, counseling and mental health support, along with various other expenditures.

This scholarship is open to undergraduate and graduate students attending an accredited university or college within Australia or the United States. We have no GPA requirements and no application forms. This is our way of supporting individuals who want to pursue their goals through education.
