For many talented students, the cost of attending university prevents them from pursuing their higher education goals. Together, we can provide the support these aspiring students need to transform their lives.
Side by side with you, The University of Queensland is committed to increasing our scholarship endowment by $30 million by 2020.
UQ will double your gift. To inspire others to step forward, UQ is investing $15 million to match donations over $50,000, dollar for dollar, when directed towards the creation of a need-based endowed scholarship.
Establishing a scholarship gives you the opportunity to leave a legacy for future generations. You may even choose to honour your family, a friend or a relative by naming a scholarship.
Together, we can support students experiencing financial hardship, and ultimately make higher education affordable for everyone - year after year, generation after generation.

An endowed scholarship generates a perpetual source of funding for students, providing scholarships year after year, generation after generation.
