Support access to education
For more than 50 years, La Trobe has been providing access to quality higher education to those from diverse communities.
Where you grow up shouldn’t impact your chance to go to university. Yet for many aspiring regional and remote students, starting university means confronting an expensive move away from home.
Facing hefty upfront relocation expenses, students living in regional and remote areas are more than twice as likely to defer their place at university compared to their urban peers.
Take recent Bachelor of Agricultural Sciences alumna, Amy Copland. Thanks to the support of generous donors, Amy was able to move from her family farm in north-western Victoria and excel at our Melbourne campus. Now a skilled graduate, she’s giving back to regional communities through her dairy research work in Gippsland.
'Knowing that I had to move away from my family meant that it would be more expensive to go to University. I'm eternally grateful for the support my scholarship has given me,' said Amy.
With your support, we can continue to help students like Amy fulfill their dreams of a university education and create a better future for the next generations of La Trobe alumni.
Whatever the size of your gift, a donation today demonstrates your passion for La Trobe and will make a difference to the students of tomorrow.
