To recognise this significant anniversary in a meaningful 'Rotary' manner, the Club is funding a scholarship for a PhD student in conjunction with Australian Rotary Health (ARH). In addition a further PhD scholarship has been generously donated anonymously . Both scholarships are for research into community aspects of dementia.

The Scholarships are valued at $29.000 pa for three years (plus another 6 months if warranted). The Rotary Club contributes $11,000 pa, the University contributes $11,000 pa and ARH $7,000 pa. Total value $87,000 each, $174.000 including the second scholarship. ARH also administers the scholarships.
