Classics and Antiquities Fund Description

The Classics and Antiquities Fund supports the Discipline of Classics and Ancient History in the School of Historical and Philosophical Inquiry, and the RD Milns Antiquities Museum at The University of Queensland. In order to provide such support, Friends of Antiquity was established in 1988 as a special interest group of Alumni Friends. Friends of Antiquity is a volunteer-led, dedicated and enthusiastic group which continues to hold events—raising funds to establish endowed UQ student scholarships, to support the Discipline, and to assist the RD Milns Antiquities Museum in the purchase of many important artefacts.

Why donate to the Classics and Antiquities Fund

Your support of UQ’s Discipline of Classics and Ancient History ensures that students have the privilege of studying the languages, history, culture, art, philosophy, and legacy of two of history’s most influential civilisations – Ancient Greece and Rome.

Friends of Antiquity raises funds through its regular events in support of the study of Classics and Ancient History and the RD Milns Antiquities Museum. Donations are held in the Classics & Antiquities Fund, from which disbursements are made with the approval of the volunteer Committee. Projects over the last thirty-plus years have included bringing expert speakers to the University, supporting the establishment of academic positions in the Discipline, establishing new endowed scholarships for students studying Classics & Ancient History, and for the purchase of artefacts for the RD Milns Antiquities Museum.

New Members of Friends of Antiquity are always welcome (minimum suggested donation of $100 for new members). You can be part of the Friends of Antiquity legacy with your support this Giving Day. We hope that you will join with us in supporting The University of Queensland.
