Stories of Impact

Everyone has a story. At CQUniversity we take the time to get to know our students, who are able to achieve their education thanks to the scholarships from our generous partners and donor community.

Through scholarships and bursaries, students are supported on their journey to be who they want to be, and by sharing their stories they hope to inspire more of our community to support CQUniCares. Be inspired to create change with us and discover the stories of those we’ve come to know.

"My dream is to become a registered psychologist where I hope to work with children, adolescents and their families who suffer with any form of disability. It’s a field close to my heart, as I have seen first-hand the challenges my family members have faced and the lack of support for people with disabilities."

"My scholarship has helped to buy textbooks, pay internet bills and help clear the debt I have obtained travelling to Queensland to attend a residential school."
