USC donors, supporters and friends assist USC in so many ways, including providing scholarships, bursaries and awards to assist students to excel in their studies, fundraising for capital development projects, contributing to research goals and towards campus beautification.

USC Donors include private individuals, organisations, USC staff members and alumni, non profits and community groups. Want to get involved in supporting USC? Become a Starfish supporter today, by joining the Starfish Program—USC's giving program for staff, community and alumni.

Scholarships, bursaries and prizes support close to 750 USC students each year. These community-supported scholarships assist students to cut back on their working hours, to take on caring roles whilst studying, to pay their HECS fees, to purchase textbooks and pay for internet usage, to supplement their travel living expenses and so much more.

The University of the Sunshine Coast is grateful for the generosity of our supporters here on staff, within the community and our region, and our Alumni—all of whom generously provide donations to fund scholarships, bursaries and prizes, which in turn support our students.
