There are many opportunities for individuals and corporations to provide scholarships and prizes for worthy students at UQ to encourage academic achievement or help combat social disadvantage. The basis on which scholarships and prizes are awarded can be developed to meet the individual requirements of the donor.  Joint industry-school funded scholarships are a possibility.

Currently, the University suggests a minimum prize value for undergraduate students of $500 and a minimum Scholarship amount of $5,000. To maximise the exposure and familiarity of the award itself and provide appropriate recognition for the donor, it is recommended that prizes and scholarships be established wherever possible for a minimum of three years.
 
A number of industry partners and alumni offer scholarships and prizes to SCMB students. Scholarship and prize opportunities are promoted to students in marketing material and your organisation’s name can be featured. Each year, the School conducts an awards ceremony for winners of substantial scholarships and prizes, to which sponsor organisation representatives and individual donors are invited.
