Nola Charlesworth Bursary

In 2015, USQ will offer one Nola Charlesworth Bursary.

The Nola Charlesworth Bursary was made possible through a bequest of Nola Charlesworth and her children. Nola was a long-time deputy principal at Clifton High School, who had a passion for assisting children with learning difficulties. This bursary was inspired by her desire to see local Clifton children realise their potential in a university setting. The bursary is for Clifton High School students who enrol at USQ. Her children also have contributed additional funds, inspired by their mother’s generosity and mutual desire to see Clifton High School students succeed.
