John Ross Clancy Indigenous Student Book Bursary

The late John Ross Clancy was an advocate for Australian Indigenous affairs, and generously bequeathed funds to USQ to advance Australian Indigenous higher education. While John Ross Clancy had many achievements, both he and his wife, Lydia, were active in initiating the Black Women's Action group in the 1970s.
