As part of our commitment to the ongoing welfare of all UOWD students, we have established a dedicated fund that can provide emergency assistance and student support in cases of serious financial crisis.
The Benevolent Fund offers limited financial assistance to full-time UOWD undergraduate and postgraduate students in financial difficulties due to medical or other emergencies. This financial assistance is a one-time payment and does not need to be paid back to the University. Please note that this fund does not cover tuition fees.
A short application is required and all cases are reviewed by a committee to determine the merit of the request. If the application is approved, the Benevolent Fund Committee will decide upon the amount to be awarded.
