Margorie Hooper Travel Scholarship 2018

This Scholarship has been made possible through a bequest from the late Margorie Hooper of South Australia. It was established to enable the recipient to reside temporarily outside of South Australia, either elsewhere in Australia or overseas, in order to undertake postgraduate studies. It is also available for surgeons to travel overseas to learn a new surgical skill for the benefit of the surgical community of South Australia. Preference will be given to the latter.

Who can apply

RACS Fellows and SET Trainees who reside permanently in South Australia and/or for the purpose of postgraduate study reside temporarily outside the state of South Australia.             


It is mandatory for the scholarship holder to make a presentation at the SA, NT & WA Annual Scientific Meeting in the year following the conclusion of the scholarship year. In 2019 this will be held in South Australia.

Please make sure you go to the Scholarships Policies web page to read the full Conditions contained in the specific policy for this award before applying. It is also essential that you read the Important General Conditions (PDF 80KB) to ensure your eligibility.
