Queenslanders can look forward to a boost in gross state product of more than $7.2 billion during construction of Inland Rail and over the next 50 years.
Scholarships for local university students
The Inland Rail Scholarship Program supports students from local communities through their full undergraduate course.
We have partnered with Charles Sturt University, the University of Southern Queensland and La Trobe University to offer scholarships to regional students pursuing studies and careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) and related fields.
Students who live along the Inland Rail route are invited to apply for scholarships valued up to $20,000, or the equivalent of $5,000 for every year of study during the undergraduate degree.
Indigenous people and those experiencing financial hardship are particularly encouraged to apply for assistance.
Sponsorship of community organisations
We are pleased to support local community groups to run events and activities through our Community Sponsorships and Donations Program.
We offer four open rounds of funding each year.
Initiatives we have funded include essential community items and activities, such as:
- completing an amenities block for the Maibin Jahyilah Yahgilah men’s cultural group from Beaudesert on their site that has significant cultural ties to Mount Warning (Wollumbin) and the Mununjali people stretching back thousands of years.
