The Leonard Broom Scholarships were established by the University from funds endowed by Emeritus Professor Leonard Broom to support programs at NCEPH that serve Indigenous Australians.
The Scholarship is intended to enable Indigenous Australian students to undertake a higher degree or other program of study in an area related to the research at NCEPH, through either a Master of Philosophy (Applied Epidemiology) or a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) program.
Up to $30,000 is available from the scholarship on a yearly basis. There will be an additional allowance of up to $10,000 for reimbursement of travel, conference and/ or fieldwork as appropriate.
From time to time smaller amounts may be allocated, as appropriate, to support Indigenous students in other relevant studies.
Applicants must meet the following criteria:
- they are an Indigenous Australian citizen; and
- are a student currently enrolled or have been enrolled at this University or another Australian university and are intending to undertake a Master of Philosophy (Applied Epidemiology) at NCEPH; or
- are a student currently enrolled or have been enrolled at this University or another Australian university and are intending to undertake a program in a Doctor of Philosophy at NCEPH.
