We'll consider:

About this scholarship:

Established in 2022 by David Akers, a UQ Alumnus with a love of history and travel. David undertook a BA (Hons) from 1981 - 1984 with majors in History, English and Economics. His love of history stems, in part, from the impact the death of his uncle, Clark Davis Irwin in WWII, made on the family.
