Why Give to UQ North America?

Your Gift Makes All the Difference

It’s true: people like you have played a big role in many of UQ’s achievements, beginning with the founding of the University back in 1909.

Sustaining Excellence in the quality of learning, discovery, and engagement as well as ensuring that research and development programs are booming requires a committed cadre of benefactors.

Funding from sources outside the University play a key role in our growth, and no contribution is too small to make a difference.

Where exactly do these contributions go?

  • To students, through scholarships, fellowships, grants, sponsored internship programs, innovative academics, outstanding faculty, and top-notch learning and research facilities
  • To faculty, departments and colleges, supporting scholarship, research, professional-level equipment, and ever-expanding programs
  • To centers and labs, for their ongoing research in applied life sciences, bioengineering, information and communication technology, materials and material process engineering, and sustainable systems and infrastructure

UQ has benefited from the generosity of its alumni and friends.

Make a gift today to support the University and its programs, research and students.

“My scholarship has enabled me to give something directly back to UQ as a volunteer mentor for the UQ Young Scholars Program. I have been able to volunteer extensively with Edmund Rice Camps Queensland, giving disadvantaged kids from the local area the chance to escape from whatever is making their life difficult and give them and their careers a break. These experiences would not have been possible without my scholarship and I am incredibly grateful to UQ for these opportunities.”
