Grace College

2020 Accommodation Scholarships

$

Transitions in life are always challenging - especially that first move away from home! Supporting that move for tertiary students provides a base for our next generation of scientists, entrepreneurs, public servants, educators, health & welfare workers and more... Supporting women in that move ensures their voices will be included in emerging scientific and professional circles.

Whether students move from one town to another, or overseas, everything is new and different. Supporting students to find a place to belong provides them with a good foundation for academic success. Students who feel like they belong succeed in their studies. 

Grace College provides supported community living for female tertiary students. All-inclusive accommodation packages include a fully furnished single room; shared common facilities; all meals; social, sporting and cultural activities; personal and academic support; and a range of other community development strategies. 

$71 provides one day of the all-inclusive accommodation package for one student.

$495 provides one week of the all-inclusive accommodation package for one student.

$3000 provides an accommodation subsidy for a UQ Young Achiever or UQ Aspire Scholar.

$5000 provides a targetted 2020 Entry Scholarship for an Australian indigenous woman; an Australian rural woman from a drought-affected area; an international student; or an outstanding sportswoman, cultural performer or community contributor.

Funds raised will be allocated to the following scholarships:

1. Targetted 2020 Entry Scholarships ($5000 x 6)

2. UQ Young Achiever Accommodation Scholarships ($3000 x 2)

3. UQ Aspire Scholar Accommodation Scholarships ($3000 x 3)

Awarding of scholarships is dependent on availability of eligible recipients applying for accommodation at Grace College.

Any funds not able to be allocated to these scholarships will be used for Foundation Bursaries which assist continuing residents in situations of financial or other hardship that might prevent them from continuing their studies.
