The QUT Learning Potential Fund (LPF) is honoured and excited to be the official not for profit partner of the QUT Classic.

From each registration the QUT Classic receives, $2 is donated to the LPF, which is then matched by QUT.

With your help, we can ensure that QUT is providing bright and ambitious students the chance to pursue a university education, where otherwise they’d have none.

You will be able to contribute to the gift of self-empowerment to those with dreams and drive, but few resources. Far from being a welfare program, the LPF is wholly dedicated to the transformative power of education. These students have already demonstrated that they can achieve special things, just by getting to QUT. Now they need a little extra support to reach their full potential.

A quantifiable difference

Your contribution to Learning Potential Fund creates a real world effect. As the only perpetual fund of its scale in Australia, your support creates a tangible and long-lasting opportunity, helping finance a portfolio of more than 2,000 annual scholarships.

With your support, the Learning Potential Fund has provided more than 17,000 scholarships and bursaries since 1998. The retention rate for our Learning Potential Fund recipients is 88%, which is higher than their peers.

Many alumni and friends of QUT, support the fund including more than 612 current members of staff who donate regularly through payroll contributions.

The Learning Potential Fund now stands in excess of $62 million toward our target of $100 million.

Your gift will keep on giving

We’re dedicated to providing opportunity for all, regardless of background. That’s why QUT underwrites administrative costs and matches every gift to the LPF dollar-for-dollar - doubling the impact and directing gifts straight to the cause.

By supporting our Learning Potential Fund, you'll be helping change the lives of QUT students in need; helping them create real futures for themselves. In turn, many of these graduates are giving back to the community and the next generation of students.
