Thank you

You are among a community of 336 donors who have supported the Gus Wiles Scholarship Fund. Since its launch in 2010, more than $409,000 has been raised. This endowment is now worth more than $590,000 and ensures that Gus Wiles’s legacy continues in perpetuity (for further information on how UQ is investing in our shared future, please refer to section 6). Your outstanding contributions have allowed The University of Queensland and chemical engineering to achieve sustainable success, creating a meaningful difference in the lives of many students.

Because of the generous gift you and the community of donors have given, many students have been supported through the Gus Wiles Scholarship Fund. The fund has allowed these students access to study overseas, enhancing their learning experience and opening up an appreciation of diverse perspectives from across the world.

Your gift to this fund has ensured that Gus’s commitment to chemical engineering at UQ and the students who study with us continues on into the future.

Thank you for all you have done to advance the opportunities and experiences of our students, so that they can continue to thrive and positively shape the future.
