The Arrow Energy Go Further Indigenous Tertiary Scholarships will provide recognition and assistance to deserving Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander students studying an undergraduate or postgraduate degree at CQUniversity.

Expectations of Recipients As a scholarship recipient, you may be asked to participate in a feedback survey. You may also be approached to assist with promoting CQUniversity’s Scholarship program by sharing your experiences as a recipient through testimonials, media or invitations to attend events such as Orientation or Open Days.

CQUniversity has a range of support services located on our website Student Support Services and Financial Preparedness.

Ongoing Eligibility In addition to the eligibility criteria, the successful applicant must:

Maintain a minimum GPA of 4.0 each term Remain enrolled in the course as at Term 2 Census Date Please note that failure to meet the continuing eligibility criteria may result in the scholarship being cancelled.

Additional Information Students may request a deferral of their scholarship in special circumstances. This request must be made through the Student Scholarships Team and should occur in conjunction with an official Leave of Absence request to the University. If approved, a scholarship may only be deferred for a maximum period of two terms (excludes Term 3). Continuing students must still maintain a minimum GPA of 4.0 in the term directly before taking a Leave of Absence.

In special circumstances, a student may also make a request to transfer their scholarship to an alternative course of study. This request must be through the Student Scholarships Team and is at the discretion of the scholarship donor.
