UQ BAFE Giving Society Prize


The UQ BAFE Giving Society was established in 2019, by the first graduating cohort of the Bachelor of Advanced Finance and Economics Honours Program (BAFE). The Society wishes to connect members in an exclusive giving group who receive special communications and unique opportunities to engage with the UQ BAFE community.

Students of the BAFE program in their first year of study are invited to apply for this prize. The aim of the prize is to provide financial support via a one-off payment to a student who is active in community service and who faces financial hardship.

The value of this award is $1000 distributed annually.
