Kevin Duke Scholarship

Kevin Duke Scholarship

The Kevin Duke Scholarship, awarded every two years, is intended to support successful applicants to fund study which will contribute to their vocational careers.

The scholarship will present opportunities for personal development that may not have been otherwise available and which ultimately, will assist individuals who have a Spinal Cord Injury to live their potential and to serve the broader community.

Who is Kevin Duke

The scholarship was named in recognition of Kevin Duke’s contribution to the Spinal Cord Injury community in South Australia via his roles at PQSA (including Presidency), professional career and public service.

Criteria

Up to three scholarships will be awarded in 2018 to individuals who have been discharged from the Spinal Injury unit between 1 July 2014 – 30 June 2018. PQSA may also support successful applicants by offering vocational placements and work experience.

Primary consideration will be given to applicants who have expressed a desire to study a vocation aligned with PQSA’s operational activities (e.g. Health, Allied Health, Finance, Human Resources, Legal Services and Marketing/Public Relations). Each recipient can be awarded a scholarship to support their educational pursuits for a period of up to five years.

Application forms are available here and close on Wednesday 19 December 2018.
