Robbie Mitchell Award

Enquiries are welcome at any time. Candidates wishing to apply for a Robbie Mitchell Award are required to satisfy the entry requirements set down for the course of study by the University of Melbourne and be accepted for entry into the course by the Centre for Adolescent Health before an application will be considered.

The award is made through a competitive selection process. Preference will be given to candidates who work directly with young people. The committee will liaise with the Centre for Adolescent Health at the time an application is received.

The committee reserves the right not to make an award in any one year. The value of the scholarship will be determined from time to time by the committee and will depend on available funds.

It is expected that a Robbie Mitchell Award will have a value up to $10,000 in 2022 assuming enrolment in a two year course of study.
