Help keep Ormond accessible
The Ormond community is committed to keeping the College accessible to the best students, regardless of their financial circumstances, and providing these students with opportunities they otherwise would not have had.
With neither of my parents coming from academic backgrounds, and coming from a school where TAFE was considered the normal post-school pathway, I came into Ormond both clueless and mildly terrified of what my university experience would entail.
Thank you so much for helping students, such as myself, access what can only be described as a life-altering journey of academic discoveries, social adventures and some truly incredible memories.

Currently about one third of students need significant financial support to come to Ormond.
Students such as those from rural or Indigenous backgrounds, face significant obstacles to higher education. Scholarship support is vital to redress this imbalance and overcome these barriers
I came from a small country town in Western NSW. Being able to be part of Ormond has nurtured me through the enormous lifestyle adjustments which university demanded. Once I found my feet, the academic stimulation and extracurricular offerings available here have fed my passion and continued the momentum. Being part of this community has changed my life.
