The Duguid Travelling Scholarship was established to assist Indigenous Australian students to travel to a national or international conference or to come to NCEPH for an approved visit or program of study.

The scholarship is funded from an endowment made in 2002 to The Australian National University's Endowment for Excellence by Rosemary and Bob Douglas and Dr Andrew Duguid. It recognises the contribution made by their late parents, Charles and Phyllis Duguid, who spent much of their lives working for the advancement of Australia 's Aboriginal population.

In 2016, with the agreement of Rosemary and Bob Douglas, the Duguid Travelling Scholarship was additionally made available to non-Indigenous students working in Indigenous Health.


To be eligible applicants must be working in Australian Indigenous health and currently enrolled at NCEPH (with preference given to an Indigenous Australian person), or an Indigenous Australian person wishing to come to NCEPH to undertake an approved visit or program of study.
