CQUniCares Appeal


Thank you for creating change.

From 9 - 13 October 2023, we put a call out to our community to join with us in raising funds for students experiencing financial hardship, First Nations skills development and seagrass restoration

Thanks to the collective generosity of more than 120 alumni, staff, students and community partners, we raised over $25,000. 

Funds raised will: 

  • Enable at least five students to be supported from early 2024 with a CQUniCares Student Success Scholarship or CQUniCares Student Success VET Scholarship.
  • Provide greater opportunity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to undertake research qualifications, closing an important gap in Australia's research capacity.
  • Help protect our coastal environment and marine life through seagrass restoration, ensuring it can be enjoyed for generations to come.

Thank you to everyone who supported this year's appeal. If you didn't get a chance to donate during this year's appeal, but would still like to show your support, you can make a donation at any time throughout the year. Please know that your continued generosity does make a big difference. 

Likewise, if you would like to be involved or kept informed about our plans for 2024 CQUniCares Appeal, please contact Francois Gallais, Deputy Director, Philanthropy via ourpartners@cqu.edu.au
