Description

Established in 2020 by Drs Donald and Isobel Perry-Keene through their generosity and belief in supporting others. Don and Isabel are UQ Class of 1966 medical school graduates who have a long history of caring for Queenslanders. Don was one of Brisbane's first endocrinologists, and Isobel an accomplished anaesthetist. Both Don and Isobel came from humble beginnings in rural country Queensland to study medicine at UQ in Brisbane where they met and fell in love. The couple’s three children, Susan, Joanna and James, all UQ graduates, endorse this gift as a way to honour and carry on their parents' names and legacies.

This scholarship sits under the Faculty of Medicine’s Financial Aid Scholarships. The Financial Aid Scholarships were established in 2020.
