Why Support Scholarships?
Rising Stars Scholarship supporters believe in the value of education.
Supporters are businesses, individuals, councils and community organisations that believe, as we do, that the students of today are Australia's future.
There are many different reasons to support the Rising Stars program. We invite you to be part of this important initiative.
- Recognise, support and contribute to student achievement
- Encourage students to stay at university to complete their degrees
- Support excellence by enabling recipients to reduce working hours to concentrate on their study, assisting completion in a shorter time
- Support the region: students who study in a region tend to stay after course completion and contribute economically and socially to the local community
- Encourage local high school students to stay in the region to study
- Engage in the life of Southern Cross University through events on campus
- Embrace associated media and promotional opportunities
