About this scholarship:

This scholarship was established in 2020 by the Alumni Friends Society under the Create Change Scholarship match initiative. The naming of the scholarship marks the transition from Association to a UQ Giving Society, and acknowledges the support of all members of Alumni Friends. Alumni Friends includes a number of members who have supported UQ since 1967, while others have joined in more recent years. Together with those who join from 2020, Alumni Friends members are the 2020 Founders of Alumni Friends as a UQ Giving Society. The annual distributions of the endowment support domestic students who are facing financial hardship.
