UQ Rugby Charity Round boosts Indigenous Scholarship Fund

16 July 2021

UQ Rugby has chosen the UQ Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Scholarship Fund as the beneficiary of its 2021 Charity Round.

To raise funds, specially-designed first-grade jerseys are being auctioned off, with all proceeds going to the Scholarship Fund, empowering Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to access a university education.

A university education can be a powerful game-changer for Indigenous students, with impact extending to whole families, communities and the nation.

The first-grade jersey features designs from the hero artwork of UQ’s Reconciliation Action Plan, A Guidance Through Time, by Quandamooka artists Casey Coolwell and Kyra Mancktelow.

The online auction will be open until 4pm on Sunday 18 July.
