Our grant and fellowship recipients

UQ is home to a number of grant and fellowship recipients who have utilised their expertise to improve teaching and learning within the University.

We recognise their excellence and innovation, and encourage all of our staff to develop initiatives that can create positive educational outcomes.

Along with providing assistance in the application process of external grant and fellowship programs, we have developed our own internal programs. UQ's grants and fellowships provide professional recognition and development opportunities.

They give our teachers the opportunity to complete projects they're passionate about while contributing to the continued enrichment of teaching and learning at UQ.
