The Benefits of Joining Alumni Friends

Alumni Friends share in the belief that successful, stable and diverse communities need world-class tertiary education, where world-class universities depend on the support, encouragement and engagement of alumni and the wider community.

Completing a UQ degree is not a pre-requisite of membership and new members are always welcome.

The benefits of Alumni Friends membership include:

  • information on forthcoming UQ events;
  • information about disbursements from the Alumni Friends Fund through the award of scholarships and similar (including invitations to relevant events for student presentations);
  • discounted access to UQ library services;
  • invitations to events, including an annual Society event;
  • access to the ‘3T Program’ (established from January 2020, combining the Alumni Friends annual program of Three Score Club talks with UQ’s ‘Tea and Tours’ program); 
  • opportunities to attend Society events for the presentation of prizes, awards, scholarships and disbursements from the Alumni Friends Fund and similar; 
  • an opportunity to participate in Friends of Antiquity (through donation to the Classics & Antiquities Fund); and an opportunity to participate in the Board.  

Full-year membership (all inclusive of GST) is based on a donation to either the Alumni Friends or the Classics & Antiquities fund:

  • ‘New members (other than Honorary or Life) can make an annual tax-deductible donation of  $100.00’ to the Alumni Friends fund.
  • Existing members can make an annual tax-deductible donation as follows:
    • Seniors $20
    • Individual (and Joint Senior) $35
    • Joint/Family $45
