Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the University’s impact is already evident in our community – in Australia and around the world. The University of Queensland strives to continue this impact through life-changing student scholarships, attracting the best academic leaders and driving life-changing research outcomes. UQ has the research expertise, passion and determination to solve the problems to key global issues. It is this determination that helps us to support the disadvantaged, protect environments, treat diseases and empower the community.
When you make a gift to The University of Queensland UK Trust you not only help to sustain critical programs and research, you also help provide education and scholarships for students who may not otherwise have access to higher education. Some of UQ’s innovations and achievements made possible with donor support include:
- Saving lives with Gardasil™ and Cervarix™ – cervical cancer vaccine that has reduced the rate of cervical cancer-causing infections in Australian women by almost 90% and is available in 120 countries;
- Significant breakthrough in a potential cure for dementia through a non-invasive ultrasound treatment that could reverse memory loss and cognitive decline;
- Preserving the world’s coral reefs for future generations. The crown-of-thorns starfish could play a major role in helping to save marine environments globally;
- Helping the vulnerable through UQ’s Pro Bono Centre. Our students are making a difference by providing free legal services to the community.
By giving to The University of Queensland UK Trust you are investing in future generations. As UQ climbs the global rankings and its reputation improves, we continue to attract high-achieving students, world-class academic staff and are increasingly able to develop qualified graduates who become leaders in their field.
