9 x $6,000 Future Community Leader Scholarships

When will I be notified?

Students who are awarded either the Vice-Chancellor's Principal's Recommendation Scholarship or Future Community Leader Scholarship will be notified in October 2014. That's right, before you even have your OP you'll know that you have a USQ scholarship waiting for you.

When do I need to apply?

Both Early Round Scholarships close on Friday 29 August 2014. After this date you can also apply for a whole range of other USQ scholarships. In most cases, these close Friday 31 October 2014.

I'd like to apply for other Scholarships?

The program is run by the University of Queensland in Brisbane and for selected students, there are many benefits including financial rewards whilst you are still at school.

To be eligible for the program you must meet the following criteria:

  • Australian citizen or a permanent humanitarian visa holder
  • Be OP eligible
  • Low financial status
  • School attendance of at least 85%
