The Law School seeks to support financially disadvantaged students with a number of modest scholarships. These scholarships, which are typically below $3000 per annum, seek to cover the gap between a student’s funding (from government support and part-time jobs) and the cost of living for those who are obliged to live away from home. Emergency aid is also available to deal with unexpected crises.
The Bar Association of Queensland generously supports one of these scholarships.
Other scholarships, and the emergency fund, are presently supported by the generosity of a number of alumni who waive their fees for teaching at the Law School, to allow Law School funds to be devoted to these purposes.
