Scholarships and Awards
This scholarship was established from funds donated by the Victorian Medical Insurance Agency and introduced to encourage and attract students to pursue an undergraduate honours degree in medical sciences. The scholarship will assist financially disadvantaged students, who may not have had the opportunity to complete their degree without the scholarship, to gain a greater understanding of academic medicine whilst making their own contribution to the advancement of knowledge. As a condition of this scholarship, recipients will provide leadership, tutoring and mentoring to other medical students residing in on campus accommodation.
