Establishing a scholarship

Thanks to the donations of many generous benefactors, we have been able to attract and support some of Australia’s brightest creative minds, yet we still seek more support. Major scholarships give students an invaluable opportunity to study with us.

Donors to the Faculty may also receive invitations to special events and performances throughout the year. Annual donations of $1,000 or above may provide donors  the opportunity to have scholarships named in their honour or in memory of a family member. These gifts include membership to The University of Melbourne’s Chancellor’s Circle.  More information can be found at the Giving Circle website.

Before making any gift to the University, a donor should seek independent taxation advice from an accountant regarding the proposed gift, including advice regarding whether that gift or the value of the gift that will be tax-deductible. The Australian Taxation Office has endorsed the University as a deductible gift recipient ('DGR') under Subdivision 30-BA of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 (Commonwealth), as a public university (see item 2.1.1 in subdivision 30-B, and item 1 of the table in section 30-15), with effect from 1 July 2000.
