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 scholarship has been life-changing, for my study and my family's future. It means not having to choose between buying a text book or school shoes for my daughter."

"I think education has the power to transform lives, and the power to provide opportunities –that’s for me and for my children, it has the power to lift people up."

"I think one of the most powerful things that the scholarship has also given me, is actually the fact that they believe in me. There were times over the last year where everything just felt like it was too much. And knowing that they believed me, just gives you that extra push."
