In 2021, Heritage Bank was proud to announce a new scholarship at the University of Southern Queensland (USQ). Valued at $6,000, the scholarship aims to support members of south-east Queensland’s growing refugee community through their first year of study at USQ.
The first recipient of the scholarship will be awarded in 2022.

Established to honour the memory of a much-loved former Heritage Bank executive, the Heritage Bank Peter Cleary Memorial Scholarship will assist a second-year student from rural or remote Queensland doing a business or commerce degree at USQ. Awarded annually, the scholarship aims to develop and build capability in the vital skill set of accounting, business and finance professionals within regional and remote Queensland.
