By expanding our students’ horizons through a new overseas exchange scholarship program.
By lifting the value of the Annual Appeal and other scholarships to compare favourably with
other Australian universities.

UTAS has a unique role as the only university in Tasmania and with that we embrace our local community. The University’s Statement of Values also ensures we are outwardly focused and part of a global community; it is vital that our students, no matter their background or means, engage with the rest of Australia and the world.
Your gift to the Annual Appeal will enable our students to work and live in our global society while encouraging them to return home and enrich the economic, social, cultural and intellectual life of Tasmania.
Your gift to the Annual Appeal will open the world to ensure our students reach their potential.
