If you could give one piece of advice to a new Curtin student, what would it be?
In this year's appeal, we're asking our alumni to be guiding lights. Your caller will ask you to share a piece of advice: words of wisdom you wish you'd heard as a new student. Advice from our alumni will be displayed across campus, on our website and social media, and will be distributed to new students as they begin their Curtin journey.
The impact of your philanthropy
Through the 2017 Alumni Annual Appeal you created scholarships for two students and propelled the business idea of a team of young graduates. In this video, you'll meet the people whose lives you transformed.
Giving to the Appeal
Funds raised in the Alumni Annual Appeal will create new opportunities for those students with boundless potential but limited means, and will help get innovative ideas off the ground.
100% of your donation will be used for the cause you choose to support, and we'll keep you informed of the impact of your gift. Gifts to the Appeal are tax-deductible.

Alumni Futures Fund Scholarships
The Alumni Futures Fund will provide vital funds to assist and encourage Curtin students experiencing difficult personal and financial circumstances.
In 2017, donors to the Alumni Annual Appeal created two new scholarships. By donating to the Alumni Futures Fund Scholarships in 2018, you will continue to transform the lives of Curtin students, providing them with new opportunities and supporting them through their journey.
Young Alumni Helping Hand Fund
As recent graduates, Curtin’s young alumni truly understand the rising financial pressures of university education.
Funded solely by the young alumni community, the Helping Hand Fund will support students who are struggling with their essential study costs. By contributing towards small grants for unexpected study-related expenses you can ease some of their stress, so that they’re able to focus on their studies.
Alumni Innovation Fund
Curtin is a university with innovation at its heart. The Alumni Innovation Fund celebrates this spirit, and through its support of the burgeoning ideas of students and recent graduates, will foster the development of inventive solutions to the world’s issues.
Donations received in 2017 supported a team of recent graduates to launch Gelavo, an environmentally-friendly and healthy frozen dessert that began as an idea for their Bachelor of Science final-year project.
WASM Scholarship Endowment Fund
The WA School of Mines (WASM) has been at the forefront of enhancing the knowledge and skills of the mining and resources sector for over a century.
The WASM Scholarship Endowment Fund will invest donations to establish a sustainable source of funding for generations of WASM students in need of support, encouraging the brightest students of all backgrounds and experiences to become future industry leaders.
The Alumni Annual Appeal will run for six weeks, from Wednesday 5 September until Tuesday 30 October.
Curtin’s students will be calling from the following phone number: +61 8 9266 9255.
