The MAIC-RACS Trauma Scholarship was established from a grant from the Queensland Motor Accident Insurance Commission being matched by the Foundation for Surgery to enable RACS to offer annual funding for research into trauma.

Who can apply?

RACS Fellows and Trainees.

SET applicants are eligible to apply for a scholarship in anticipation of their acceptance into the SET Program. Evidence of acceptance into the program must be received by the ANZ Scholarship and Grant Coordinator by November in the year before the award commences in order to be eligible.



Proposed research may be in any of the following areas: epidemiology, prevention, protection, rehabilitation or immediate or definitive management in trauma. It is not a requirement that the research be conducted in Queensland but it must be shown that the potential benefits flowing from the research will assist the people of Queensland.
