Greatest Need Fund

When you give to the University’s Greatest Need, you make a lasting impact where it matters most.

Your contribution benefits students in financial need, supports programs aimed at developing the next generation of leaders, and provides vital funds for potentially life-saving research.

Thanks to our generous donors, the University’s Greatest Need fund supported a wide variety of initiatives including:

  • the Young Achievers Program where deserving students who face additional barriers to accessing education, such as distance and financial disadvantage, receive much-needed career, personal, mentoring, and financial support.
     
  • a mid-career fellowship at UQ’s Queensland Brain Institute that will contribute to further advances in the prevention and treatment of disorders of brain function, such as dementia, schizophrenia, and motor neurone disease.
     
  • scholarships to support students participating in the UQ Idea Hub — Startup Adventure — a program that offers international innovation and entrepreneurship focused internships to some of UQ’s highest performing students.

 

The University’s Greatest Need is just one example of the many causes at UQ that you can choose to support.
