Bondies supporting Bondies
The Student Opportunity Fund (SOF) is funding sourced from the generous donations of Bond alumni through the Ambition Appeal.
SOF is available to support students in achieving their goals either as an individual or part of a club. The activities should demonstrate an ‘out of the classroom’ experience that enhances the education experience of Bond University students.
We acknowledge the contribution of past Bondies to help future Bondies.
Eligibility for Individual Students or Clubs
SOF is open for applications from the following individual students completing a degree at Bond University either Diploma, Undergraduate or Postgraduate level.
Bond University Student Association affiliated clubs and societies are also eligible to apply for group funding.
The nominated activity must be undertaken while enrolled at Bond University.
