The Richard Spenser Hopkins Prize in Civil Engineering was established in 2004 in memory of Richard Spenser Hopkins, a Civil Engineer and Past President of Alumni Friends of The University of Queensland.

In 2019, Alumni Friends determined to replace the prize, and to establish an endowed undergraduate scholarship under the Create Change Scholarship Match Initiative to support undergraduate students studying engineering who are facing financial hardship.

The purpose of the Scholarship is to encourage and support a final year engineering student studying at The University of Queensland who is facing financial hardship in any field of the civil engineering discipline.


An applicant is eligible for the Scholarship, if the applicant:

  • can demonstrate financial need;
  • submits an application to the Head, by the closing date for applications;
  • is enrolled full-time in an Approved Program in a Relevant Field;
  • has, at the time of application, completed the number of units towards their program within the range specified in Addendum 1;
  • has completed at least 16 units at The University of Queensland; and
  • does not hold a scholarship that the Head considers to be similar.

How to apply

Please submit an on-line application by the due date.
