Last year we launched The Queensland Commitment – our ambitious goal to disrupt educational disadvantage by removing barriers facing talented Queensland students aspiring to study at UQ.
We want to ensure that by 2032, all Queensland students accepted to UQ have the support – financial, academic and personal – to overcome any challenge standing in the way of their studies.
Louise (Bachelor of Science ’20) is a second-year Doctor of Medicine student and past Young Achievers Program (YAP) scholarship recipient.
Louise was in Year 10 when she first considered university – no one in her immediate family had attended before.
She said finding out she was accepted into the program was a moment she’ll always remember.
