There is a set of program requirements that must be completed before you can submit an application to be considered for the Award. On this page, you will find a list of suggested Award activities for each category as well as some information to consider when planning your activities.  

Things to consider

When planning, please consider the following information:

  • This list is not exclusive and you are encouraged to find your own unique experiences as well.
  • Plan ahead because access to some activities can be limited due to a competitive application process or specific discipline/study-related requirements.
  • To ensure the activities you complete are eligible, make sure you read the Program Requirements and Eligible Activities sections within the conditions of participation.  You can also contact to have someone check the eligibility.  
  • Regularly visit the UQ StudentHub Jobs Portal to peruse the advertised opportunities.
