UQ’s partnership with the Ramsay Centre

Following the signing of a philanthropic agreement with the Ramsay Centre for Western Civilisation on 15 November 2019, UQ will welcome the first of five cohorts studying an extended major in Western Civilisation in 2020.

The agreement formalises arrangements to fund approximately 150 Ramsay Scholars, 10 academic staff and two professional staff to deliver the programs, and is consistent with the University's policies of autonomy over curriculum, academic appointments, academic freedom and governance arrangements.

The University is pleased to share the key academic clauses of the Philanthropic Agreement here.  The full text of the Philanthropic Agreement will not be released as it contains information and provisions that are commercial in confidence.

An overview of the Western Civilisation curriculum can be viewed here, and more information on the program is here.

Future students interested in applying for a UQ Ramsay Undergraduate Scholarship - Western Civilisation, worth up to $30,000 per year can apply here.
