Cohort Connections

Applications are open for Semester 2 2023.

The Cohort Connections Fund aims to support staff and student clubs and societies to provide cohort-building activities that enhance HASS coursework students’ sense of belonging and employability capabilities.  

The fund can assist with organising and conducting such activities in a safe environment that adheres to government and UQ health and safety policies.

  • Prizes for Students
