Fifty $1,000 Golden Jubilee Student Bursaries

A major fund-raising activity linked to the Golden Jubilee celebrations of Alumni Friends (2017-2018), is the tax-deductible 50th Anniversary Fund, with a target of providing 50 new student bursaries of $1,000 each, to be presented to students in 2017-18. To donate, click here.

This page will continue to be updated with information as bursaries continue to be presented during the year.

May 2017: Mrs Joan Cribb presented the trophy to Max Whiteoak, who scored his second career Great Court Race win (1:30:10). Mrs Cribb is a foundation member of Alumni Friends, and has been a very active volunteer and supporter of the UQ Alumni Book Fair®, having worked in connection with 19 of the 20 Book Fairs. This represents almost 40 years of volunteer work for the Association, and thus also for UQ.

May 2017: Josephine Auer (R) won the Women’s Great Court Race, receiving the trophy and $1,000 Golden Jubilee Bursary from Dr Peter Jell (L). Peter Jell is a UQ Blue in Rowing from 1966 and has been an active participant in that sport for more than fifty years. He is an active volunteer in connection with the Alumni Friends’ Book Fair, having recently taken over responsibility for the logistics for the Bookhouse team—no mean feat when you consider that the volunteers have almost 200,000 books for sale at the biennial event.
