Young Alumni Helping Hand Fund
In 2017, the Young Alumni Helping Hand Fund initiative was created in collaboration with a group of Curtin Young Alumni, to provide immediate short-term relief to students experiencing financial difficulties, whom are seeking support from Curtin’s Psychological and Counselling Services team
Ultimately, the young alumni community wanted to ensure as many students as possible, could remain confident in their studies and focus on what’s most important besides staying healthy – their education.
Through the Curtin’s Psychological and Counselling Services team, they provide vouchers or small grants to students so they can purchase study-related materials, pay for their groceries or bills, or access services such as public transport.
To date, the young alumni community have raised over $20,000 and supported 43 international and/or domestic students in need.
