The scholarship programs are open to both UQ Honours and Higher Degree Research (HDR) students for research at the University's Moreton Bay Research Station on North Stradbroke Island. Two rounds of scholarships are available every year - one round for research to commence in Semester 1 and another for research commencing in Semester 2. 

Recognising the strong community support for research programs that address real issues in Moreton Bay and surrounds, and to foster community involvement in research, the MBRS has developed a Community Research Scholarship to provide UQ students with the equipment and access required for investigations of the diverse habitats, social and environmental concerns of Moreton Bay. One scholarship for an Honours student and one scholarship for an HDR student are available. The scholarships provide in-kind accommodation, laboratory and boating use valued up to $1000 in a 12 month period at MBRS.
