USQ Scholarships

We've partnered with the University of Southern Queensland to give a helping hand to students through two Heritage Bank scholarships

Heritage Bank Peter Cleary Memorial Scholarship

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.

A little about Peter Cleary

Peter Cleary had a 24-year career at Heritage, including a significant period as the bank’s Chief Financial Officer, before sadly passing away in 2019 after a long illness. He was also very active within Toowoomba’s service groups and his church community.
