In 2023, UniSQ will offer one Rowlings Family Scholarship to support a student commencing their studies in the Bachelor of Education.
The Rowlings Family Fund was established by Colin Rowlings as a memorial to honour his parents, Neil and Elizabeth. The family lived a challenging yet fulfilling rural life, moving from the Inglewood-Texas area, via Stanthorpe to Toowoomba. After a career of farming, Colin's father worked as a member of the professional staff at the University's School of Communications and the Arts for 15 years, from 1983-1998. Colin's mother embraced education opportunities for herself and her children and held teachers in high regard for the important role they play in the betterment of society.
