The Rotary Club of Alexandra Headland also enjoys a close relationship with the University of the Sunshine Coast, and are pleased to be part of the University of the Sunshine Coast Community Fund.
This community fund is established to give grants to students to help them financially with their studies.
In 1996-97, the Rotary Club of Nambour and other Rotarians proposed that all Rotary clubs on the Sunshine Coast join together to support Australia’s newest public university, the University of the Sunshine Coast.
At the same time, founding Vice-Chancellor Professor Paul Thomas AM was promoting his strong vision that the University should be an integral part of the community.
The Rotary and University of the Sunshine Coast Community Fund (RUSCCF or the Fund) was created and the relationship is now well established.
Contributions to the Fund now exceed $155,000.
