Over $27,000 raised, providing 13 students with essential Study Support Bursaries
It's not every day that you get to improve someone's life, and even the future, but G-Day is that day.
Please give what you can, so students doing it tough have the best chance to reach their full potential.
The day I received an email saying I had been chosen to receive a Study Support Bursary, I was in disbelief. I read it over and over again just to make sure I was reading it right and then called my family to share the fantastic news.
I’m extremely grateful and want to say a huge thank you to all those involved in supporting this program at USC. This Bursary has allowed myself and many others, to strive in our studies, without the financial pressures, and take every opportunity that arises because of your generosity.
You have helped students who were on the verge of giving up and have put a smile on their faces, reassuring them everything will be okay.
On behalf of all the USC Study Support Bursary recipients, your kind donations have helped us achieve goals that were unreachable before, and we can’t thank you all enough.

I moved out of home when I was 17 to go to this university, I received no financial assistance from my family, as they were in hard times themselves.
Financial stress is a major worry for everyone, add on university exams, assignments, bills, rent, and groceries. And anything else unforeseen that occurs, and you have yourself a perfect recipe for a breakdown. I want to offer my sincerest gratitude to all those who make the study support bursary possible. Without it, I would have been in significant financial hardship throughout my final year at university during practical placements.
The opportunity to get out in the field and apply the knowledge I have gained through my studies and apply them to my clients and patients, was an amazing experience.
These are people whom you learn about through clinical presentation, symptoms and case histories at university, but never know their name, how far they have had to travel for treatment and what it means to them to be able to walk with her 5 year old daughter again. These are experiences you will never forget.
Unfortunately, due to the location and hours required at these placements, I was not able to work and hard-earned savings quickly diminished. The study support bursary helped me pay for rent, groceries, food and bills accumulated throughout this extremely tough time.
Not only has this helped me financially, but mentally and for that I will be forever grateful. I was able to fully embrace my time on placement and this helped me enhance my clinical skills as an Exercise Physiologist.
