CQUniCares Academic Prizes

Awarded annually^, CQUniCares academic prizes recognise and celebrate the academic achievements of CQUniversity students.

Made possible through generous donations made by individuals and organisations, academic prizes are designed to encourage and recognise academic excellence.

Receiving an academic prize not only looks good on your resume and social media but may open the door to more benefits and opportunities, including industry contacts.

^As academic prizes are awarded annually following the release of results for all terms, individual prize criteria and the prize itself are subject to change without notice. Likewise, this could mean students are recognised in the following year, potentially after they have concluded their studies at CQUniversity.

Current CQUniCares Prize Winners

On behalf of CQUniversity, we extend our congratulations to all 2020 CQUniCares Academic Prize winners and pass on our thanks and gratitude to our valued donor community who make these generous prizes possible.
