About the University of Queensland and Scholarship

The University of Queensland is divided into divisions for academic, administrative, and logistical reasons. The university’s senior academic advisory body is the academic board. It develops policies on academic issues such as new programs, instruction, evaluation, and learning, as well as research, job advancement, student academic issues, awards, and scholarships. Each year, a member of the academic board is chosen to serve as president. A deputy president serves as the president’s assistant part-time.

The university maintains a variety of multidisciplinary research institutes and centers at the national, state, and university levels in addition to disciplinary-focused teaching and research within the academic faculties. For instance, the Institute of Modern Languages, the University of Queensland Seismology Station, the Asia-Pacific Centre for the Responsibility to Protect, and Heron Island Research Station.


The Madeleine Olive Taylor Estate left a legacy to support the Madeleine Taylor Scholarship, which was started in 2011 and is still in operation today. The scholarship’s goal is to encourage research in anthropology and sociology related to women’s studies.
