Regional Impact Scholarship Fund
At Charles Sturt University our ethos is Yindyamarra Winhanganha – a Wiradjuri phrase meaning 'the wisdom of respectfully knowing how to live well in a world worth living in.
We believe every single person has the ability to make a difference to their community and to the world.
To ensure that everyone is given that opportunity - no matter their financial circumstances, Charles Sturt University established the Charles Sturt Foundation In 1982.
Since then the Charles Sturt University Foundation has awarded more than 4,000 scholarships to Charles Sturt students facing adversity totalling over $15 million.
In 2020 the Charles Sturt University Foundation launched the “Charles Sturt Foundation - Regional Impact Scholarship Fund”, aimed at helping students from our regions achieve their dreams of a higher education degree - whilst also helping our local communities fill the skill shortages felt in regional areas by retaining our best and brightest. This includes helping students overcome the recent challenges of COVID-19, Bushfires, floods and other obstacles to education.
