Funding of $710,500 was allocated in 2014 for Funding Partner PhD scholarships.
Scholarships are advertised directly to universities and research institutions in the geographical area nominated by the Rotary Partner. The Rotary Partner selects the area of health – which must be kept relatively broad to enable a competitive selection. All applications are assessed by various members of the Research Committee or other relevant medical experts in the chosen area of health, with the final selection being made by Australian Rotary Health.
Funding is provided by:
Applicant’s University/Institution $11,000 per annum
Rotary Funding Partner $11,000 per annum
Australian Rotary Health $7,000 per annum
