In 2022, USQ will offer a number of USQ Incarcerated Student Learning Resource Request Scheme to support incarcerated students who are commencing or continuing an undergraduate program at USQ, by assisting them with the purchase of required texts.

It allows universities to undertake activities and implement strategies to improve access to undergraduate courses for these groups, as well as improving the retention and completion rates of those students.

The resource scheme will open each semester and is subject to ongoing eligibility.

The value per student of the resource scheme will be distributed on an as needs basis in line with the student's course requirements.
