CQUniCares Emergency Grants are funded through the generosity of CQUniversity staff, Alumni and supporters. The Emergency Grants support low-income students in need of urgent financial assistance, helping them to continue their studies. As there is a limited allocation of CQUniCares Emergency Grants, the decision regarding successful applications will be final. The Student Life and Wellbeing Centre reserves the right to the discretionary use of funds. Unsuccessful Scholarship applications are not grounds for applying for an emergency grant.
