The Jeff Cheverton Memorial Scholarship has been established by the Deeble Institute for Health Policy Research, together with Brisbane North Primary Health Network and North Western Melbourne Primary Health Network to honour the memory of Jeff Cheverton, who demonstrated excellence in health leadership until his untimely death in March 2017.
This six-week scholarship supports scholars to develop an issues brief on a topic relevant to primary health, mental health, aged care, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, or LGBTQI health. The successful applicant will receive an honorarium of $5000 and be provided with the opportunity to spend 6 weeks working with a peak national health body, based in Canberra, and to establish connections with policymakers and practitioners working in their field of research.
The Scholarship is open to postgraduate tertiary students, early career researchers and those working in primary health, mental health, aged care, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, or LGBTQI health.
Applications close at 5pm AEST on Friday 11 August 2017. More information on the scholarship can be found at http://ahha.asn.au/deeble-research-institute/jeff-cheverton-memorial-scholarship
