The Davison Family Scholarship has been established by the Davison family to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders who might, without financial assistance, be unable to contemplate a career in surgery. The overarching goal of this scholarship is to increase the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander surgeons practising in Australia.

Who can apply
