UQRFC has a close relationship with club sponsor, Kings College. Kings is a residential college for 320 men and women located on campus at UQ. Each year, Kings provides residential scholarships to three first year athletes playing for UQ Rugby.

Each scholarship is worth $4,000 and is put towards the athlete’s accommodation expenses. To apply for the scholarship, the athlete must first be accepted to join the college.

Although UQRFC is located on a university campus and is affiliated with the University of Queensland, we are welcoming to all players, student or not. The Halley Appleby Memorial Scholarship is awarded to an apprentice of the club that best embodies the attitude of fallen Red Heavy, Halley Appleby.

Halley tragically passed away following a match in 2011 against GPS. Halley was a budding young tradesman who made up the lifeblood of the club – he epitomised what it was to be a good person and a great Red Heavy.

The Halley Appleby Memorial Scholarship is valued at $3,000 and is presented at the Halley Appleby Memorial event each year to help the recipient to purchase tools and anything else required of an apprentice.
