Veterans Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) PhD Scholarships

On ANZAC  Day  2015, Australian  Rotary  Health  announced  its newest PhD Scholarship initiative the ‘Australian Rotary Health PhD Scholarship – Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in Service Personnel and their Families’.

The inaugural PTSD PhD Scholarship was awarded to Kristin Graham at the Centre for Traumatic Stress Studies, University of Adelaide, South Australia. Ms Graham is investigating the link between common physical health symptoms and the development of mental illness.

The second scholarship as part of this initiative is the ‘Rotary Club of Ballarat South PTSD Scholarship’.   Rebecca Sheriff, Centre for Traumatic Stress Studies at the University of Adelaide, will study the link between common mental disorders and traumatic stress – to more effectively screen, monitor, treat and support those in the Australian Defence Force.

Future plans are for ARH to jointly fund A PhD Scholarship with the RSL – ‘ARH & RSL Scholarship in PTSD in service personnel and their families’.
