In 2022, USQ will offer two Barry Fields Memorial Bursaries to support students commencing or continuing their studies in the Master of Learning and Teaching (MOLT, MELT, MPLT, MSLT) or Master of Education (MEDC/MEDF).
The Barry Fields Memorial Bursary was established by his sons, Mark and Tim, to remember Barry and honour his dedication and enthusiasm for teaching and education.
For almost 40 years up to his retirement in 2015, Barry was a lecturer, researcher, and research student mentor in a range of subjects within the USQ Faculty of Education. He had a passion for Special Education.
This bursary promotes his belief that everyone deserves access to and participation in education.
