Robbie Mitchell Scholarship

Enquiries are welcome at any time. Candidates wishing to apply for a Robbie Mitchell Scholarship 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 awarding of a scholarship is 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 award a scholarship in any one year, or to award more than one 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 Scholarship will have a value of $5,000 per annum for successful candidates in 2021.
