Tertiary Education Bursaries

About the Bursary Program

The Tertiary Education Bursary Program was started in October 2010 to help financially needy students from the Central Queensland region achieve their academic goals.  To date 55 students have received a Bursary to assist them in completing their Bachelor Degrees with over $1.2mill worth of funding provided by the Foundation.   Students attending CQU Rockhampton will have priority, however students attending other Universities will be considered in special circumstances at the discretion of the Board.

Although the majority of Bursaries are awarded to first year students, those who are in their second or third year may also apply as long as they fit the criteria in the Bursary Guidelines.  A Bursary may be awarded in the second semester of a year if the Board approves, but the amount of the Bursary will be reduced accordingly.
