Charity Donations

The University of Sydney has received a $35 million gift from the Susan and Isaac Wakil Foundation.  In 2015 the Wakils gave an unprecedented $10.8 million to Sydney Nursing School to establish 12 annual nursing scholarships, bringing their total University giving to nearly $46 million.

Susan Wakil Scholarships are available to undergraduate and postgraduate nursing students who are either based in Sydney, are from rural or regional areas of Sydney or are from an Indigenous or Torres Straight Islander background.

A total of up to 12 Susan Wakil Scholarships are offered annually by Sydney Nursing School to support the education of deserving students who demonstrate a high level of ability and potential.
