USC introduces bursary for LGBTIQ leadership
9 May 2019
A $1,500 bursary is now on offer at USC to recognise the efforts of students contributing to an inclusive culture on campus and awareness of issues affecting people of diverse genders and sexualities.
Manager of Student Access and Diversity Veronica Sanmarco said the bursary, to be introduced for the first time in Semester 2, was another way for USC to support the LGBTIQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer) community.
“USC is committed to the principles of equity, fairness and inclusivity,” she said. “We want all of our students to learn, live and work free of prejudice and discrimination.”
The bursary, which is sponsored by the Sunshine Coast Pride Network, will provide financial support to a student who identifies as LGBTIQ and demonstrates commitment to promoting greater campus understanding of the issues.
One of USC’s governing policies is ‘Equity and Diversity’, which aims to create a work and study environment that values the rich diversity of staff and students.
Applications for the bursary close on 31 May.
