The Arts Assets Giving Circle

Established in 2019 by Dr Sheena Burnell, The Arts Assets Giving Circle brings together a group of like-minded community members to establish impact scholarships. These scholarships will support QCGU students who excel in their art form and are undertaking their fourth year or honours studies.

Giving Circles are powerful and strategic. Through collective passion and shared investment, a Giving Circle can make deep impact and create lasting change. They can also be a lot of fun and deeply rewarding.

Throughout the year a small selection of opportunities will be planned for the members to observe and support the student’s progress. These might take the form of attending recitals, master classes or sitting in on rehearsals.

To remain eligible for the scholarship, you will be required to:

  • remain full time enrolled at Griffith University in the program for which the scholarship was awarded
  • maintain good academic standing at Griffith University.

The above conditions are verified each trimester at Census date. If a scholarship recipient fails to successfully meet these conditions, scholarship payments may be withheld, or the scholarship may be terminated.

Applications, including Referee Reports, must be completed and submitted by the closing date.

Offers are made via email. Applicants may be shortlisted and be required to provide additional information.

The University reserves the right to withdraw an advertised scholarship at any time.
