Community is central to our mission and we know that our community extends past our doors. For this reason, we offer multiple membership scholarships within our spaces and have plans to widen our reach as we grow.Apply for a Scholarship
Last financial year alone, The Commons sponsored 45 scholarships across Sydney and Melbourne. Some of our current scholarship members include The Global Women’s Project, Mi Vote, One Plate, and Co Ground.
As The Commons expands, so does our scholarship program. Soon, it will extend to include five locations in Melbourne and Sydney.
Since its inception, The Commons Scholarship Program has contributed over $295,000 to organisations committed to changing the world.
The Global Women’s Project is supporting women in Nepal and Cambodia to access the skills and resources they need to determine and improve their own lives.
They have provided support for more than 2500 women.
These women have accessed information and business resources, developed their skills and joined their Women’s Hub resource centres.
In 2019, we proudly invested in renewable energy. Sustainability and environmental consciousness are key values of ours, so we made a conscious decision to support solar and wind to help offset our energy-related carbon emissions. We give our members easy options to make sustainable decisions in their daily lives by providing educational content, reusable containers, encouraging alternative modes of transportation and keeping recycling bins accessible in all our spaces.
