Up to 30 UQ Ramsay Undergraduate Scholarships are available to commencing students each year to study Western Civilisation in either the Bachelor of Advanced Humanities (Honours) or Bachelor of Humanities / Bachelor of Laws (Honours) program. The Scholarship is open to recent year 12 leavers with Australian Citizenship or Australian Permanent residency status. If you are a current year 12 student, you are still eligible if you take a gap year; however, you cannot undertake any tertiary study at a Bachelor level or higher during this gap year. 

The value of the UQ Ramsay Undergraduate Scholarship is $30,000 each year for the full-time duration of the program, and includes a return economy airfare to undertake an approved Global Experience.

Full details on the Scholarship including the rules, eligibility and criteria can be seen on the central scholarships website here. The online application form can also be accessed from the central scholarships website during the period that applications are open.

To change programs between the two Western Civilisation study pathways you will need to lodge an application for the new program via QTAC.

A transfer of the Scholarship between the two Western Civilisation study pathways is not automatic and requires the approval of the Executive Dean. If you intend to change your program and wish to also transfer your Scholarship, you will need to complete and submit the Request to Transfer Scholarship form by 15 December of the year prior to commencing your new program. Further information is contained within the form.

If you transfer out of an approved program, you will lose your scholarship. You will not have to repay any scholarship funds received previously for semesters that you have completed.

An overseas experience is not only available, but encouraged! As a scholarship recipient, you may receive one return airfare to undertake a UQ Global Experience. A UQ Global Experience may take the form of a formal semester exchange at one of our approved partner institutions around the world, or a short-term overseas experience that may be for an internship, work experience, volunteering or community-based learning, or study of less than a semester. Short-term experiences may be for-credit towards your program or may be not-for-credit.

Ramsay Scholars are encouraged to continue to contribute to the UQ and greater community.
