Youth Research Grants

The Queensland Government has partnered with Queensland universities to deliver the Youth Research Grants.

The grants aim to stimulate interest in research that reflects the needs and views of young people and support them to directly influence research priorities and projects.

In 2022, grants were provided to seven Queensland universities to lead their own research initiatives with young people under the age of 25 from across a diverse range of backgrounds and study areas. The research projects focus on current and emerging issues, covering four overarching topics:

  • climate action and the environment
  • future foods
  • sustainable communities
  • wellbeing and health.

So far, 78 research projects across the state have been delivered which have involved more than 700 young Queenslanders.

More projects by students at the Queensland University of Technology will be released later in 2023.
