Chairs and Fellowships

Establishing a philanthropic Chair or Fellowship is one of the most significant ways in which industry partners can support a Faculty, School or Research Centre at UQ. The creation of an endowed academic Chair enables UQ to develop and enhance research and teaching in a priority area of study and to attract world-leading experts, particularly in highly competitive markets. As leaders in their fields, Chairs and Fellows also help to attract the talented, high-achieving undergraduate and postgraduate students who contribute to UQ’s continued academic and research excellence.

Industry funded Chairs may be established with a focus on a specific area that is important to the industry partner.
