Fund a scholarship
Some of our best students are restricted by financial hardship. By funding a scholarship and enabling students to realise their potential you are supporting tomorrow’s heroes. Our Advancement Managers are happy to discuss naming your scholarship or award, and the most effective ways to ensure a lasting legacy, such as:
• Student Equity Scholarships – Offer students from disadvantaged backgrounds, isolated or rural communities the opportunity to access a world class university education.
• Scholarships for Indigenous Students – Help address the under-representation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the dental profession by increasing the number with professional qualifications.
By funding a scholarship you can also inspire others in the wider community, who may have never considered a university education due to financial constraints, to pursue a career in oral health care.
Endowments allow you to support the School in your own way. Endowments can be established to run for a set period of time or in perpetuity and can be established at any time or there can be a deferred benefaction through a bequest.
Bequests are a gift detailed in an individual’s Will, and offer a powerful legacy. It may include the residuary or a percentage of an estate, a specific sum of money or an asset such as a property, work of art or share portfolio. Your bequest can fund a specific purpose, such as an academic post, research, or a student award. Alternatively you can endow your bequest, or give the University permission to use your gift in a way that will bring most benefit at the time. If you plan to make a bequest, we welcome the opportunity to discuss with you a named commemoration in a professorial chair, scholarship, laboratory or other initiative. You may also wish to consider naming a family member or loved one as a lasting memorial.
We respect that your decision to make a bequest is a reflection of your personal values and experiences. Our Advancement Managers will work with you or your legal advisor to ensure all your wishes are met; however we are unable to offer direct legal or financial advice or estate planning. Making a Will is a very personal matter and we strongly recommend that you consult your legal advisor before drafting a new Will or updating an existing one.
