Friends of Music Scholarship Fund

You can support the journey of a professional musician through The University of Queensland’s Friends of Music scholarship. A philanthropic initiative from UQ’s School of Music, donations to this fund support the studies of an outstanding first year Bachelor of Music (Honours) student. In 2020, violinist In Yi Chae was the inaugural scholarship recipient.

If you would like to support future students like In Yi, please consider donating to the Friends of Music Scholarship Fund:
