William Buck is proud to announce the establishment of an Indigenous scholarship for a talented Western Sydney University student through the William Buck Foundation. The scholarship is aimed at providing financial assistance to an Indigenous student pursuing a course within the University’s School of Business.

The decision to establish this scholarship stems from our deep-rooted commitment to fostering inclusivity and making a positive impact on the community.

Why was this scholarship established?

Greg Travers, Managing Partner, William Buck NSW “We believe in the power of education to provide opportunities that transform lives, and this scholarship is a step towards building stronger connections between Indigenous communities and the business world.

We believe that the benefits of receiving a scholarship extend far beyond the university years, empowering students with confidence as they embark on their professional journeys and contribute to society at large.”

Why did we choose Western Sydney University?

With a large Indigenous population and a commitment to transformative philanthropy, Western provides an ideal platform for initiatives like this to thrive.

We thank the William Buck Foundation for their kindness in establishing this wonderful new scholarship that we look forward to awarding, and for their generosity in supporting the Indigenous strategy at Western Sydney University,” said Professor Trudgett.

We eagerly look forward to the awarding of the scholarship and beginning this partnership with Western Sydney University.
