Bur­sary on of­fer

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - NEWS -

THE Univer­sity of the Sun­shine Coast is of­fer­ing a $1500 bur­sary to recog­nise the ef­forts of stu­dents who con­trib­ute to an in­clu­sive cul­ture on cam­pus and aware­ness of is­sues which af­fect peo­ple of di­verse gen­ders and sex­u­al­i­ties.

Stu­dent Ac­cess and Di­ver­sity man­ager Veron­ica San­marco said the bur­sary, to be in­tro­duced for the first time in se­mes­ter two, was another way for USC to sup­port the LGBTIQ-plus (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.”

Ap­pli­ca­tions for the bur­sary close on May 31.
